SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri State University student who feared he swiped a potential sweetheart out of his life with a dating app mishap has emailed every Claudia on campus to find her.
The freshman meant to swipe right on the woman’s Tinder profile — a sign that he wanted to meet her. Instead he swiped left, rejecting her.
All he knew was her first name and that she also was a Missouri State student. Over the weekend, he began emailing the 22 Claudias on campus, offering to take the one that got away out for doughnuts.
When freshman Claudia Alley got the email, she knew it was about her because it referenced a joke in her bio on the app. She told the Springfield News-Leader she’s agreed to the doughnut date.
Movie, newspaper that share name confusing some ‘Post’ fans
ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — A student newspaper in Ohio is getting some social media love meant for the award-winning movie with the same name.
The Post of Ohio University in Athens has the Twitter handle @ThePost , which some people have assumed belongs to “The Post” movie. Steven Spielberg’s real-life 1970s drama about The Washington Post this week was nominated for the best picture Oscar, while Meryl Streep earned her 21st best actress nomination.
But some messages meant for @ThePostMovie have gone to the Ohio U. Post’s account. Besides a 20th Century Fox congrats for Streep, there have been fan messages and promos for TV appearances and movie showings including at theaters in England.
The Post’s social media director blogged this week about “numerous compliments for the great work we’ve done, which we actually haven’t.”
