Lolo Jones has accepted the request of one fan on twitter. Jones accepted the date request of Bubby Lyles after he was able to get 150,000 retweets on the social network site.
At about the three minute mark of the below video Jones accepts the request.
Jones then wonders who will pay for the date.
@harrylylesjr 2x Olympic champ @elsupersanchez ran down to the dining hall and told me the news. I cant wait to go out on our date!

For those wondering Lyles is a student at Georgia State.
BEST OF MAXIM
GOT IT DONE
A few weeks ago, a journalism student at Georgia State got Lolo Jones to agree to go on a date with him if he managed to get 150,000 retweets. He did.
Typically, attempts to hit on famous women via the Internet are destined for failure. Such advances aren't exactly unusual, are commonly creepy and probably not often even received.
But now here comes a guy named Bubby Lyles to do the impossible. We choose to go to the moon and hit on Lolo Jones via Twitter, JFK said, not because those things are easy, but because they are hard...
Twitter strikes again! Or, should I say, begging for retweets succeeds again (or, for the first time). A journalism student at Georgia State got Lolo Jones to agree to a date with him if he could get 150K retweets.
If I get 150,000 RTs @lolojones will let me take her on a date! Help me out! pic.twitter.com/j9hFfxqlCi
