‘Twirting’ doesn’t always have to end in embarrassment and humiliation – it can help romance blossom if you ‘Twirt’ your cards right. Actress & swimwear model Liz Hurley and Australian cricketer Shane Warne proved that Twitter can be a platform for love when their long term relationship started with a single Tweet back in 2010.

Marriage can even stem from ‘Twirting’.  MasterChef’s judge Greg Wallace met his wife Heidi Brown on Twitter in 2009. Wallace was wooed when Brown left a flirtatious message asking if he knew he had been labelled a 'weird crush' in a magazine - and he replied: 'Ever visit London? Give me a call and I’ll buy you lunch’.

The platform can be the perfect route to romance and there is something quite naughty about people publically sharing their affections online. Let’s be fair, we all love seeing the soap opera unfold.  Here at  we hate the thought of people sitting at home alone on Valentine’s Day so we have launched the I Heart Bingo game play where people can win a share of 25k and share the love.“
