Tinder seeks to tackle trans harassment
CEO of Tinder, Elie Seidman, posted a message, acknowledging issues trans people had to go through using the Tinder app. He also shared his vision on changes to accommodate all types of users.
This happened after Tinder system automatically banned a number of trans users due to other people flagging their accounts.
Tinder team, after that, has already implemented in-app warnings to show users what guidelines they violated, rather than just banning them right away.
The Tinder CEO said in his statement: “Since implementing these changes, we’ve been able to meaningfully increase the number of trans people who remain on Tinder despite unwarranted reports. I’m encouraged by the progress we’ve made, and am dedicated to continuing our assessment and refinement of Tinder’s reporting structure.”
