Tinder Now Matches You With Political Candidates
Los Angeles-based dating and relationships app developer Tinder has rolled out a new feature which lets you "swipe right" on your opinion on a number of issues -- and helps hook you up with a political candidate. Tinder's new "Swipe The Vote" feature asks users to swipe right or left, depending on if they agree or disagree with issues, and helps to match them with presidential candidates. The new feature is part of an effort with Rock the Vote, which is looking to spur more millennial participation in the upcoming presidential elections. According to the two, the questions revolve around a user's position on legalizing marijuana, same-sex marriage, drilling for oil and gas in America, raising minimum wage, stricter laws for online piracy, increasing education funding, and other issues.
