Twitter is in love with the friendship between a 22-year-old Harlem man and an 81-year-old West Palm Beach woman, re-tweeting photos of their first in-person meeting hundreds of thousands of times.
Spencer Sleyon and Roz Guttman met online while playing the Scrabble-like mobile phone game Words With Friends about a year ago.
They later chatted digitally, talking about politics, hurricanes and Sleyon's dream of moving to New York to pursue a music career, according to The Root.
Sleyon did make the move to New York, where he reconnected with an old friend, whose mother happened to be a pastor.
When Rev. Amy Butler overheard Sleyon say "My best friend is an 80-year-old white woman who lives in a retirement community in Florida," she found a way to arrange for the two to meet in real life.
And people are loving the whole thing.
