Words make friends: Young rapper meets elderly gaming partner for first time

The two became long-distance buddies while playing the online game Words With Friends, where the octogenarian caught his attention by playing the word "phat".

For anyone who needed reminding that not everything about the internet is a awful garbage fire, please allow me to introduce you to Spencer and Roz.

Although, Sleyon hadn't played "Words With Friends" for about a year, he still considered Guttman a good friend.

On Friday, Sleyon flew from NY to West Palm Beach to meet his online friend. A Scrabble-like gaming app, players can be matched up with either pre-existing friends or strangers, and Guttman and Sleyon-then strangers-were paired up.

Spencer said he had never been to Florida and thanked Ms Butler for making the meeting a possibility.

Spencer tweeted photos with Roz - and his post now has more than one million likes on Twitter.

Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter. The pastor arranged for a meeting in West Palm Beach on Friday.

Sweet day today with Spencer and his #wordswithfriends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time.

They tweeted, "We can't get enough of this!"

Here's to Sleyon, Guttman and great friendships-and all of the unlikely places from which they spring.
