Five Things - 4Most people probably think of Twitter as just another social media platform where you can chat with strangers, read the news, and, of course, find memes to send your friends.

But now, thanks to new dating app Loveflutter, your Twitter activity could help you meet a romantic partner. The app was just released Wednesday.

Loveflutter takes your 10 most recent tweets and displays them on your profile, along with all your ‘normal’ info, like your place of work, education, etc., and the app has a unique, Twitter-inspired feature that makes swiping more entertaining: each user has a 140-character fact that’s displayed over a blurry version of their profile picture (you can tap it to un-blur) — so the goal is that you’re swiping based on looks and personality. Once you find a match, the app can also supply you with date ideas or places to meet. It also helps locate potential matches who are nearby.


Five Things - 5President Trump did an interview with The Economist, and in it he claimed he came up with the phrase “priming the pump.”

TRUMP: We have to prime the pump.
ECONOMIST: It’s very Keynesian.
TRUMP: We’re the highest-taxed nation in the world. Have you heard that expression before, for this particular type of an event?
ECONOMIST: Priming the pump?
TRUMP: Yeah, have you heard it?
ECONOMIST: Yes.
TRUMP: Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven’t heard it. I mean, I just…I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It’s what you have to do.

But in the economic context he’s talking about, it’s been around since the 1930s.
