But then this happened...
In the end, it is difficult to determine how many real Tinder users there are in these remote locations. While I'm not entirely certain on why spammers decided to place these bots in such inconspicuous places, I speculate that they were virtually seeded on random basis in each territory using geo targeting.
In the end, one thing seems to be certain. That is Tinder has created a world where physical reality and hyper reality can exist simultaneously. In this world, its citizens are made up of humans, bots and somewhere in between who/that are indistinguishable from one another.
