A couple of users even accused the app of being the worst wingman ever.
@Tinder I would like my matches and messages back! Wtf tinder! Cock blocking so bad right now lolll— Ismar Jakupovic (@Ismar_313) March 14, 2016
But don’t worry, there’s still hope for anyone looking to swipe right for a spouse, or even a fumble in the sheets.
Tinder tweeted hours later that the crisis had been averted, explaining all swipe-happy Casanovas and digital sirens had to do was the age-old trick of turning the app off and back on again.
