A Viral Prom Tweet Was Melting Hearts Across The Internet And The Story Behind The Tweet Was Very Sweet

Prom season is upon us which means we will be seeing a lot of promposals in the near future. It also means that we are about to see some really sweet stories of prom loves and losses that will touch our hearts. One young man has already captured the hearts and love of so many people on Twitter with a sweet post honoring his mother and her sacrifices to get him to where he is now.

Joe Moreno has made the internet fall in love with him with one tweet.

The Corpus Christi 18-year-old tweeted that he took his mother to prom because she wasn’t able to go to hers.

“I have always wanted to take my mom ever since I first found out what prom was,” Joe tells mitu.

Joe tweeted that his mom — named Vanessa — had to drop out of school because she had him at the age of 17.

Before Joe invited his mom, however, he apparently had to ask his school permission since students aren’t allowed to take adults to prom.

Joe said that he did ask the school and told him about his situation, so clearly they approved. And prom went off without a hitch.

“My mom truly loved spending that day with me,” Joe says. “It was special to the both of us.”

The pair took cute pictures to commemorate the special event.

Since he posted his tweet on April 14, it has been retweeted 25,000 times and liked more than 160,000.

Joe says that his classmates have all heard about his viral tweet and his mom too.

“My mom is really surprised and shocked by all of this.” Joe says. He also said that no one at his school gave him a hard time for taking his mom to this school event.

Twitter is giving Joe so much praise for taking his mom to his prom.

“Your parents are your world,” Joe says. “Cherish your family.”
