Yep, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has tied the knot with his college sweetheart, Priscilla Chan. According to AP, wedding guests “thought they were coming to celebrate Chan’s graduation [from U.C. San Francisco medical school] but were told after they arrived that the event was in fact a wedding.” PUNK’D!
Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about all this. (Twitter has quite a bit to say about everything.)
First off, there was near-universal agreement that the couple’s wedding photo sucks:

If I had half the fortune of Mark Zuckerberg, I'd spend more money on my wedding outfits and photographer.

Zuckerberg's wedding picture posted on his facebook is weird & lame. Can't billionaire hire a good photographer? pic.twitter.com/cprF73Cd

From Chan’s Facebook page, a happier photo:
Naturally, there was faux concern about Zuckerberg’s financial security:
Mark Zuckerberg gets married ……that must have been one hellava pre nup.

That Zuckerberg pre-nup looks like "War & Peace" mixed with a few WW2 treaties. Congrats to him!

Mark Zuckerberg has married Priscilla Chan. She said "I didn't marry him for all his money..But I am going to divorce him for half of it"

Remember, if Zuckerberg loses half his fortune he will be worth only $10 billion. With gas at $4/gallon, nobody can live on that!
As you might expect, Twitter had quite a bit to say about the ethnicity of Zuckerberg’s bride.
