    @briannacry posted this tweet asking people to help her find her "best friend." They met for one night on a Hawiian cruise a decade ago.

    Hey twitter, I met this girl on a dinner cruise in Hawaii in 2006. We were basically bestfriends for that night so I need y’all to help me find my bestfriend cause I miss her and I need to see how she’s doing now. Please retweet this so we can be reunited.

    Ellen DeGeneres invited both woman to her show for an epic reunion.

    10 years later, it was as if they never stopped being friends.

    Brianna explained that she sent out the tweet before she went to bed, and when she woke up there were thousands of retweets. The original tweet has gained over 120,000 retweets at this point!

    Heidi told Ellen, once she heard that Brianna was looking for her, she searched through boxes of photos to try and find a pic from that cruise a decade ago.

    The pair snapped a photo on set to remember this timely reunion.

    Ellen surprised the two, giving each of them a check from Shutterfly for $10,000 to use towards their college tuition.

    This reunion definitely paid off!
