Twitter users have been calling on Elon Musk to develop an AI-powered dating app called 'Twinder,' that uses AI to make matches instead of random swiping, endorsing it as a way to save humanity from extinction.


When Elon Musk acquired Twitter in 2022, he made several changes to the site, and users now can pay to become verified, which many users feel is unreasonable. The change has also led to various public figures having the blue check marks snatched away from their profiles.


Several public figures have spoken out about Musk’s decision to change the feature. Artists like Lil Nas X, Doja Cat, and many more have expressed irritation at their verification being taken away unjustifiably.

Now, users on the platform are beckoning Musk to make the platform a dating site and he also seems to Like the Idea 


The idea was floated by a Twitter user called Steven Mark Ryan tweeted.


"Might save humanity from extinction. Not even joking. Musk, who appears to be a subscriber of the account @stevenmarkryan, was quick to respond to the tweet, replying, 'population collapse."



Ryan also offered to “make an entire video on how the opt-in app would work and why it would be much better than other conventional dating apps.” He also named Twitter “the EVERYTHING app.” 


The idea stirred mixed reactions from Twitter users. Some think it’s a terrible idea, while others pointed out it would be a great way to meet like-minded individuals.

Some users even went on to tell stories of how they’d met their current partners on Twitter.


The New App Might Come With Great Interesting Features


The suggested Twitter dating feature would feed users with posts, comments, and likes, using artificial intelligence to look for another user with similar behaviors and interests to make matches instead of random swiping.


The Twitter thread, which was viewed over two million times, has hundreds of comments, with numbers sharing how they met their partner through the social network.


Musk called the idea “interesting,” adding that the feature could potentially lead to “jobs offers too.” Musk considered the tweet potential and also shared his plans to add new features to the platform, including video and voice calling features. Additionally, Musk has revealed that Twitter is currently working towards adding payment features to Twitter.
