#BREAKING: Elon Musk Purchases Tinder For $9 Billion, In Desperate Bid To Find A Girlfriend

TINDER SWINDLER: He’s the world’s richest man who launches rockets to the moon, makes cameo appearances on Rick and Morty, and smokes joints on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

But it seems Elon Musk remains lonely.

Yesterday he announced the purchase of social networking platform Twitter, and today the Tesla CEO has also acquired a key player in the dating app industry.

Elon Musk is the new owner of Tinder, after the dating app’s previous owners accepted Musk’s $9 billion (AUD) offer.

“I’ve got big plans for Tinder, and I’ll admit, some of them are self-serving,” the 50 year old told DBT.

“I’m going to tweak the algorithm so that my profile appears more widely on the app. I want to give myself a better chance of finding a new girlfriend.”

And just as he’s already doing on Twitter, Elon Musk is vowing to stamp out fake Tinder accounts.

He’s also expected to re-activate the Tinder accounts of banned users.

“I’m going to let the Tinder Swindler Simon Leviev back on the app,” says Musk. “Everyone deserves another chance of finding love, including me.”
