Tin­der celebs get true iden­tity

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

NOW you’ll know if you’re chat­ting with the real Shane Warne on Tin­der af­ter the datin­gapp an­nounced a new ver­i­fi­ca­tion sys­tem for celebri­ties and public fig­ures.

Sim­i­lar to the way movie stars, sports iden­ti­ties and other well known peo­ple have ver­i­fied ac­counts on In­sta­gram and Twit­ter, Tin­der will give its tick of ap­proval from Tues­day, ac­cord­ing to Giz­modo. com.

It means that if you’re des­per­ately try­ing to hook- up with Aus­tralian cricket leg­end and flirt about town Warne, then you’ll know if it’s him or some­one try­ing to im­per­son­ate him. It also might be the case for any other public fig­ures. Just how many celebri­ties will want a ver­i­fied ac­count on the dat­ing app is un­known, but since Warne ( pic­tured) openly pro­motes Tin­der for his own ser­vices, there’s at least one prospec­tive Aus­tralian cus­tomer.
