It took 10,000 retweets but a Houston-area teenager got his dream date for the high school prom: a Houston Texans cheerleader.
Seventeen-year-old Michael Ramirez, a Crosby High School senior, asked cheerleader Caitlyn on Twitter if she would be his prom date if he could get 10,000 retweets.
She responded, "Of course I will," and within 24 hours, it was a done deal.
Michael's proposal - "10,000 Retweets and I'll be taking a texans cheerleader to prom" - hit 10,000 on Friday.
Caitlyn said she is looking forward to the prom; the team does not release the full names of its cheerleaders.
Michael told the Houston Chronicle his mother tweeted to the 19-year-old cheerleader that her baby was "so excited".
He joked: "I was just, like, 'Mom, can you just stop?'"
