Activist and popular Twitter follow Deray Mckesson somewhat naively questioned if people even still use Pinterest, though he claims to not even understand what it's for. How dare you, sir! It's where we all go to see the fanciest wedding bouquets in mason jars and Harry Potter themed engagement rings!
Is Pinterest still around? I've never figured out what to use it for.— deray mckesson (@deray) July 29, 2017
Pinterest boards are fun, but one man's response elevated the social media platform to the next level. BuzzFeed News reports that Jordan, who goes by Jay from Boston on Twitter, claims that he made a secret account to follow his wife TyAnna on Pinterest so he could figure out what kind of things she likes, then buy her gifts. Until his tweet went viral, she had no idea:
Everyone is freaking out over this ingenious use of Internet stalking, and want their lovers to take notes:
Don't gas me I literally just spilled BBQ sauce on my shirt— Jay from Boston (@CapricornKing_) July 30, 2017
Though some are skeptical that TyAnna really never figured it out:
The couple did tell BuzzFeed that he's gotten her "a sapphire nose ring, lip glosses, and earrings" all based on her Pinterest pins. That's a lot of coincidences for her not to draw some sort of connection! But maybe she just thought her man really understood her.
She's not wrong, because he's still trying to give her the greatest gift of all: Twitter followers.
