So many celebs take to twitter to announce their engagements these days, but what about an actual proposal? Surely not, right? Wrong.

Electronic music star Deadmau5 used the social networking site to propose to his girlfriend Kat Von D over the weekend.

CELEBRITY ENGAGEMENT RINGS

Deadmau5, aka Joel Thomas Zimmerman tweeted: "I can't wait for Christmas so ... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?" attaching a photo of a diamond ring, along with the explanation: "Changing the diamond to black diamond FYI. Sorry for the jpg … they'll finish the actual ring soon I hope."

His reality star girlfriend and tattoo artist Kat Von D responded to the twitter proposal: "Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!"

CELEBRITY PROPOSALS

Kat Von D was previously engaged to Sandra Bullock's ex-husband, Jesse James. They broke up on several occasions, always ending up back together before long but finally split up in September.

While we wish Joel and Kat a very happy life together, we can't help but wonder whether Twitter proposals will become the next big thing. We certainly hope not...
