Are you a verified Twitter user? Congrats, there is now a new way to find love among your fellow VIPs.
BLUE is a new premium version of the existing dating app Loveflutter, and it promises to let you into an exclusive world full of celebrities and other Twitter blue tick holders. That is, if you’re verified yourself. This may either sound amazing or like a total nightmare, depending on how you feel about the people of Twitter.
Loveflutter has actually been around since 2013, but they recently relaunched as the first dating app to rely on your tweets to find you matches. Their mission is to turn ubiquitous flirting on Twitter into something real, and now they’re offering the chosen members of the platform’s elite an even more VIP experience.
The app’s founder, Daigo Smith, told Mashable, We’re like Tinder Select with a more transparent membership process. This is yet another addition to the increasingly long list of exclusive dating apps think The League, Inner Circle, and the enigmatic Raya.
So why, exactly, would a single person want to mingle with the Twitterati? Loveflutter says its a way to protect yourself against catfishing, since your identity has been verified by Twitter. But many of the other dating apps have layers designed to filter out imposters too.
Picking from some of the roughly 200,000 verified Twitter users also doesnt necessarily mean youre guaranteed to date a celebrity or even someone whos internet famous. And being Twitter-verified certainly doesn’t have anything to do with being a good person or even a particularly interesting one.
Really, though, the quality of your options will also depend entirely on what kinds of people choose to use BLUE. It you’re one of them, you’ll need to have one of those little blue check marks next to your name too. You can attempt to get one here, but no guarantees.
If you’re not one of the lucky ones to get a blue check, though, take heart. You can always try to find love the old-fashioned way: by sliding into those DMs.
