Uh oh, Tinder has caused quite a fire Image: Thinkstock
In the world of speed dating, you know Tinder is like Google Baba — the answer to everything. Tinder-ing has become an inherent part of millennial life. Tinder prince and princesses can be seen all around you. And we are not joking, people seriously do rely on the app (unlike the 'match' you find there).
By now, Tinderellas have honed the skills to keep creeps at bay and guys have upped their game to woo the ladies. Improved dating, as many see it.
But the widely-used global app recently crashed and crushed a lot of hopes in the process.
A technical issue is preventing users from logging into Tinder. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to have everyone swiping again soon.— Tinder (@Tinder) April 4, 2018
The technical glitch resulted in many people losing all of their matches and messages — ours are safe, thankfully. Tinder apologised to its users.
And we're back! Apologies for the inconvenience. We missed you too. 💚 pic.twitter.com/796L1gLsCv— Tinder (@Tinder) April 4, 2018
But people were not having it. They went totally berserk and some added their dash of humour, too.

So @Tinder deleted all my matches and I’m not sure where I’m supposed to get attention from now— neda (@userNamEDA_) April 4, 2018
We need answers, Tinder.
Someone kindly help her.

That plea, though.

At least, it worked in someone's favour.
tinder crashed/deleted all of my matches & messages immediately after I accidentally swiped right/matched with a guy I’ve DEFINITELY hooked up with already so honestly- thank you, universe. I needed to be stopped.— kathryn the great (@katstrackattack) April 4, 2018
not being funny but tinder deleting all my matches is the worst thing to happen to me since a bird shitting on me in year seven— tind (@tindkennedy) April 4, 2018
"They found love in a hopeless place" — could be their song if this love story works out.
Hey @Tinder I’m pretty sure I matched with Rihanna just before crash - you’ll have to take my word for it. She’s not appearing in my matches - can you please sort out?— T J McGinley (@tjmcginley) April 4, 2018
It wasn’t Rihanna, it was me 😉— Rosa Torres-Gotay 🇵🇷 (@rtorresgotay) April 5, 2018
All good @Tinder, I found her.— T J McGinley (@tjmcginley) April 5, 2018
All we can say is, it's a clean slate people, start afresh. Maybe this time around, f**kbois would stay away. #JustSaying
