Meltdown Tinder’s Twitter By Vanity Fair Article
The feature quoted a psychology professor who said “the impression that there are thousands or millions of potential mates” created by Tinder and other dating apps encouraged men to pursue “a short-term mating strategy”, leading to unstable relationships and a rise in divorce rates.
“Little known fact: it was invented in 2012 when Tinder was launched,” an employee at Tinder tweeted directly at Vanity Fair. They then criticized the journalist Nancy Jo Sales for not seeking comment from the company, and for holding up her interviewees as being representative of all Tinder users.
“Next time reach out to us first @nancyjosales … that’s what journalists typically do.”
They also dismissed a statistic quoted by Sales on Twitter, but not in the feature article, that 30% of Tinder users are married as “preposterous”.
“Our actual data says that 1.7% of Tinder users are married,” the employee tweeted, before expounding at length on the “meaningful connections” and happy endings brought about by the app, citing the “tons and tons of emails” about “all kinds of amazing experiences” it has received from users.
“Talk to the female journalist in Pakistan who wrote just yesterday about using Tinder to find a relationship where being gay is illegal. Talk to our many users in China and North Korea who find a way to meet people on Tinder even though Facebook is banned.”
“It’s about meeting new people for all kinds of reasons. Travel, dating, relationships, friends and a shit ton of marriages … talk to people that have made some of their best friends on Tinder,” the employee wrote over several tweets.
“The ability to meet people outside of your closed circle in this world is an immensely powerful thing. So we are going to keep focusing on bringing people together. That’s why we’re here. That is why all of us at Tinder work so hard.”
