  Fastest update of relationship status - Dana Hanna and Tracy Page set world record

 ABINGTON, MD, USA--Dana Hanna interrupted his own wedding to whip out his cellphone and update his relationship status on Facebook and peck out a Tweet, declaring he had just been married; he also handed a cellphone over to his wife to do the same-both setting the world record for the Fastest update of relationship status.

Software developer Dana Hanna threw caution to the wind as he stopped after declaring his vows to type the bizarre update on the social networking site.

   Hanna also updated his Facebook relationship status to 'married' during the ceremony.

    He had told the minister leading the service at the Mountain Christian Church in Joppato find him an opportunity to announce his news on cyberspace during the wedding.

   Since it was posted on YouTube it has had nearly 1,400,000 hits.

    In emailed comments, American Hanna explained that he and his new wife were 'very technology centric' and used Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch with their large families scattered across the U.S.

   He wrote: 'In fact, when we got engaged, we changed our Facebook statuses and didn't even call anyone since the word would spread on Facebook far faster than it would have over the phone.

   'After doing that, we received a lot of laughs, and some minor criticism from family whom were insulted that we couldn't even pick up the phone to call them.

   'It became a bit of a joke between all of us.'
    To prepare for the gag, Hanna had the maid of honour swipe Tracy's mobile just before the wedding. He pre-typed Twitter and Facebook messages into both of their phones.
