Words with Friends app brings two strangers together

In a totally cute story to warm you up for the week,  A 22-year-old rapper and producer living in Harlem finally met the 81-year-old woman he considered his “best friend.”


Best of all...he met her through the app "Words with Friends".

Spencer Sleyon, A.K.AQ. Half Empty, played Rosalind Guttman on the Words With Friends app every day for five months straight. Last week he travelled from New York City to Florida to meet her in person:

As reported by The Huffington Post, Sleyon’s tweet had more than 1 million likes and was retweeted more than 240,000 times.

The app itself responded to the story on Twitter.

Could this be the way we make new friends who match our wit and word economy?
