A digital marketeer has developed an unusual online friendship, after tracking down the man who left a note hidden in his fireplace 15 years ago on Twitter.

Alex Moss was redecorating his bedroom when he found the note, hidden away in his fireplace. 

It reads: "Hello, welcome to my room it's 2001 and I am decorating this room.

"Hope you enjoy life, remember that I will always be watching you! L8ers, Darren Clucas."

Despite the note being slightly creepy, Moss decided to share it on Twitter with the hashtag #finddarrenclucas in a bid to track down its author.

And the power of social media certainly delivered, as within hours Darren had been found.

What's even more beautiful is the fact that the pair struck up an instant friendship and began talking about how much they loved the house. N'aww.
