HOUSTON, TX - You shouldn't "tweet" while you're teed off. And that goes for you too, Tinder! The dating website is having some morning after regrets, after launching into an epic Twitter rant against Vanity Fair. Tinder is "now" saying their online tantrum was an overreaction. Swipe left!
The social media "tweet" storm that tinder unleashed to the masses, was in response to a recent article in the magazine called "Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse". The write-up basically bashed tinder and other "hookup" websites, claiming they are changing how millennials see courtship and dating.
Tinder's rapid fire, 30 tweet tirade claimed the company was much more than just a swipe-for-sex website. According to Tinder,"Our intention was to highlight the many statistics and amazing stories that are sometimes left unpublished, and , in doing so, we overreacted."
Another point that Tinder wanted to clear up with their tweet: the company claims only 1.7% of tinder users are married and not 30%, as previously reported. Whatever the real number is, many people still don't trust online relationships. So right now, the epic battle between Tinder and Vanity Fair, continues to play out on Twitter, all said in 140 characters or less.
