No Time For Real Online Dating? Find A Mate In 140 Characters Or Less
While there are plenty of Twitter haters, we’re fans of the site. Our lives are busy, and it’s easier to communicate with others on our own terms than keep in touch them all via email, or, heaven forbid, in real life. Plus, Twitter brings out the pithy in people; they have to show they’re smart and clever — even with a 140-character constraint.
Over the past few months, we’ve been online dating but have found that reading guy’s profiles can be a bit of a time-suck — a lot of them are long-winded. Yes, we’d like to know whether we might be a match, but we’d also like to catch up on “The Real Housewives of New York” episodes we missed. So, we’re all for Radaroo, a free online dating system that uses Twitter to pair up people. While there aren’t many users yet, we hope Radaroo takes off. It could be like speed dating for witty writer-types! [Radaroo via Inventor Spot]
