‘The Right Stuff': US conservatives launch dating app for right-wingers
The Right Stuff
Most jobs have their inside secrets. But now, Redditors have spilt all about their time working for online dating platforms – and it's certainly eye-opening.
From companies catfishing as women to keep men's accounts active to a full-time career dedicated to swiping through inappropriate d*ck pics all day, here are nine first-hand accounts from those who have worked on the inside:
Software bugs sending messages from the deceased
An unfortunate bug prompted a dead person to re-like their partner's profile.
The employee explained: "A couple met on the dating app I worked on. Unfortunately, the man passed away, and the lady returned to the app where they met for remembrance.
"One day, a bug in the system made some profile likes to be sent again after months, and she received one from her deceased boyfriend."
One Redditor claimed they received "so many requests for information from the police that we had an informal system with them, to save them from wasting time getting warrants for information about people who we didn't have data on."
They would ask about a particular name, email address, or other identifiers.
