Man updates his facebook status at the alter right after getting married
Married at this Very Moment

Gone are the days when friends and relatives received marriage announcements weeks after the big event. Thanks to iPhones, Twitter, and Facebook, the newly betrothed can spread the word instantly. That's become not norm. However, when the groom goes out of his way to digitally alert the masses that he's now a married man (while standing at the altar, mind you), folks tend to take notice.
Dana Hanna took digital geekery to a whole new level when he retrieved his PDA from his pocket and changed his relationship status on Facebook in front of his shocked bride and closest friends. After being pronounced husband and wife by the officiant, Mr. Hanna delayed kissing his bride and instead pulled out what appeared to be a Blackberry. Then, as quickly as his thumbs could manage, he updated his status, and sent out a tweet that said "Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride!"
One can only assume (and hope) that Mr. Hanna meant it as kind of a joke. The blogosphere looks to be giving him the benefit of the doubt. The clip itself, available on popular sites like YouTube and Yahoo! Video, has become a Web sensation. You can sign up to receive tweets from Mr. Hanna here. You know, just in case you want to be informed the moment his first child is born.
