?Tinder Vs Vanity Fair? Who Won The Recent Twitter War? Social Media Takes Sides!

By on

Like two lovers quarreling about a fight that never really should have happened, Tinder and Vanity Fair should have had a sensible conversation about their problem instead of fighting over their issues. That?s what happened on Twitter when Tinder erupted on social media, arguing that the app can offer a lot more experience rather than just being a hookup app.

Vanity Fair uploaded a piece online last Tuesday night entitled: ?Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse.? The description reads:

?As romance gets swiped from the screen, some twentysomethings aren?t liking what they see.? Of course Tinder would be furious about the article considering that the words ?Tinder? and ?Dating Apocalypse? are in one sentence. The story, by Nancy Jo Sales, described how the app?was being used as a hookup app for young New Yorkers wanting to get some sweet pie.

Tinder eventually got hold of the article and went on social media to prove a point about their app being more than hookups.

Of course Nancy Jo Sales didn?t keep quiet about her published article. She naturally defended herself on her actions and her article.

Some social media users also reacted about Tinder and Vanity Fair?s arguments.

The social app?then released a statement to Wired saying their sentiments about the apps previous pounding on Twitter. ?While reading a recent Vanity Fair article about today?s dating culture, we were saddened to see the article didn?t touch upon the positive experiences that the majority of our users encounter daily. Our intention was to highlight the many statistics and amazing stories that are sometimes left unpublished, and, in doing so, we overreacted.?

For couples who have met on the social app, this might be a tad insult over their relationship. And for people who are just really looking to hookup on the app, it may be a little bit funny. But for everyone?s sake, both of them?had their own good reasons for what they want to share. It?s really up to the users what they really think of it.
