Donald Trump was the favorite presidential candidate for Tinder users in Russia who were using the dating app's "Swipe the Vote" feature, the company's chief executive said on Wednesday.
Last month, Tinder turned on "Swipe the Vote" for the U.S. elections. The feature allows users to swipe left or right on policies proposed by both candidates. At the end, a user is matched with the candidate who best matches their views. From there, you are urged to register to vote. In Russia, president-elect Trump came out on top.
"What you see is that there was a lot of varying views…In Mexico Hillary was the favorite…in Russia Donald was the favorite," Tinder chief executive Sean Rad, said during a talk at the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon on Wednesday.
