Sorry you’re not getting your regular dose of informative Jane Doe goodness this issue, but my brain was pretty fried after exams. Instead I thought we could have a little bit of a chat about two of my least (and most) favourite things: Twitter and Tinder. Tinder can be a great way of meeting new people and having fun (sexy) times, but it also often makes users feel unsafe. Therefore, I decided to compile a set of twisters based on my own Tinder Survival Tales to raise awareness about how we talk about sex on social media. Hope you enjoy!
- Dry, flammable material, such as wood or paper, used for lighting a fire.
- A dating app which 90% of guys use to look for a casual SMASH or nudes, and 90% of women are looking for a bae or ‘just friends’.
- A chiefly British swindler or dishonest person.
- A tornado.
- Short form twitterature defined by its macabre humour and fatalist aesthetics.

XX June 2017: Its been okay. I have ran into a couple of creepies.
XX May 2018: But that could all change with you.
XX May 2018: It certainly could. So what have you been up to the past 11 months?
XX June 2018: Hey Frand! Why are you on Tinder instead of studying?
XX June 2018: I think it might have turned on in my pocket.

What’s my line again?
XX July 2018: Did you know the original name for Pac-Man was Puck-Man? You’d think it would be because he looks like a hockey puck but it actually comes from the Japanese phrase “Paku Paku” which means to flap one’s mouth open and closed. They changed it because they thought Puck-Man would be too easy to vandalize, you know, like people would just scratch off the “P” and turn it into an “F” or whatever?
XX July 2018: Haha. I didn’t know until I watched Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
I am straight but…
XX July 2018: Hey hun! You are cute! Want to catch up some time soon?
XX July 2018: Sure! Would you like to meet up for a cute coffee and cake?
XX July 2018: Would love to! Is it okay if my boyfriend comes too? We are looking for a cool chick to have a threesome with but don’t want it to be like – totally impersonal.
