An Exercise In Futility

One of Twitter’s most prominent features is the ability to have a verified profile.  I’m glad it was put into effect, as I want to ensure that when I follow @TheRock, it isn’t someone pretending to be Dwayne Johnson (or a huge fan of the 1996 Michael Bay film).  I suppose Tinder’s implementation of the same feature for its service is also useful, but is it really?  Let’s say you are swiping away on your phone, and you celebrity crush pops up on your screen.  If it’s, say, a 49-year old balding hairy gentleman living in Casper, WY, then you definitely want nothing to do with that.  But if it IS him/her… what’s the point?  This person is way out of your league, and there’s only a snowball’s chance in hell you’ll be considered.  Then again…

Alright, go for it.

    With my luck, the only real celebrity I would meet would be someone awful…like Donald Trump or Paula Deen…

    I hope to one day come across The Rock’s verified Tinder account.

  3. Yeah I mean, I’d probably say I’m interested just to get their contact info!

    I just want to remind everyone that Jude Law slept with that nanny (on a pool table!!!) that everyone said was chubby and plain. There’s hope for us all!!

    If Xenia Onatopp gets a verified Tinder account, I will express interest.

    So, we talked about Mystery Show a few weeks back? The Starlee Kine podcast? The most recent episode involves (spoiler alert) Starlee chatting with Jake Gyllenhaal on the phone, and I totally got the vibe that she could spin that situation into a date! For the first time I thought maybe I should start a podcast. Maybe one about Tinder verified profiles?
