  • Spencer Sleyon and Rosalind Guttman meeting for the first time after playing over 300 games on the Words With Friends app together

Words With Friends is a multi-player Scrabble-like mobile phone game which was launched in 2009. Pastor Butler also took to Twitter to share the sweet story of Sleyon and Guttman's meeting and the story went viral on her page as well.

On Saturday, Spencer finally met his opponent in person when he flew to her home state of Florida to pay a visit.

The pair have played more than 300 games together - and the rapper said they have become friends despite the distance between them.

Spencer, who lives in Harlem, started playing Roz on Words with Friends last summer.

"Last summer I randomly met this [80-year-old] woman on Words with Friends", Sleyon tweeted soon after the meeting. Spencer tweeted they have played more than 300 games together.

"She came to me weeks later and asked me how would I be interested in going to Florida for a day to meet her", Spencer told FOX 5.

Thanks to the help of a New York City pastor, they recently met in real life and, thanks to the power of Twitter, everyone knows about it and can't stop crying tears of joy.

The photos quickly went viral, with over a million likes and 240,000 retweets in just three days. Clearly, the moment wasn't lost on him, or the thousands of others who shared the heartwarming moment, including the Words With Friends account itself.

Butler then chose to bring the two together, coordinating the meeting and flying down to Florida with Sleyon.
