WASHINGTON POST - May 26 - Twitter doesn't bill itself as a dating service or even a place to meet people. Since its founding in 2006, however, it has emerged as an unlikely matchmaker for singles who share highly specific interests, made searchable using hashtags. The hashtag #WeMetOnTwitter, which has been used in ~500 Twitter posts suggests there are many couples who found lasting romantic partnerships on Twitter. UK dating app Loveflutter works just like Tinder but displays users' Twitter-like bios, which must be 140 characters or less. It has recently launched a feature that embeds users' 10 most recent tweets into their profiles.
