13 years after the Twin Tower attacks, Professor finds the owner of a wedding photo she found at Ground Zero in 2001!
A Professor would tweet a wedding photo every year since joining Twitter to find its owner. And this year she did!

It turned out to be a lucky 13th year for Professor Keefe, a Lesley University professor, who had been hoping to reunite a wedding photograph she has found at Ground Zero in 2011. Every year since joining Twitter, Elizabeth Stringer Keefe would tweet a photo of a wedding scene in September in the hope that someone would be able to identify at least one of the people in this group photo.

While users on Twitter prayed the people in this happy wedding photo were safe, it seemed like an effort that would go in vain, as no one had come forward to claim the photo in over a decade.

This year turned out to be lucky for her. She was in for a huge surprise when she finally tracked its owners and joyfully declared on Twitter that all the people in that photo were safe. She even spoke to one of them.

Doesn't social networking make the world seem like a smaller, better place at times?
