Tinder needn't be hard work: These are the jobs most likely to land you a match

Tinder profiles can range from demure and detailed to downright dirty. For those of us who take a more traditional approach to our bios (meaning we avoid the eggplant emoji in favor of a standard description), listing a career is often at the top of the list, alongside educational info.

As it turns out, your job could potentially increase your chances of getting a right swipe on the popular dating app. Tinder has revealed the jobs its U.S. users find most appealing. The list, which is split according to gender, shows a huge divide in the types of jobs each sex finds attractive.

Women, for example, are most interested in pilots, entrepreneurs, fire fighters, doctors, and media personalities. Adding credence to the fact that Tinder isn’t as shallow as it’s widely perceived to be, a professional male modelling career is ranked lower than such occupations as teacher and engineer.

The same goes for men, who aren’t that interested in models either, with the profession just cracking the top ten. Instead, male users mostly swipe right on physical therapists, interior designers and entrepreneurs. Women who class themselves as PR professionals and teachers also made the top five. Check out the full lists below.

Tinder’s popular jobs data was compiled based on the occupations of user profiles that received the highest ratio of right swipes from November 2015 (when the feature was launched) through January 2016. During that time, “millions of users have added their job to their profiles … [increasing their] chances of receiving a right swipe,” according to the app.

Upon its introduction, Tinder claimed that job and education listings on profiles were among the most requested features from its users. It was noted at the time that the update was an attempt to distance the app from the hook-up culture it was accused of perpetuating.

X begins charging $1 a year for new, unverified accounts
A white X on a black background, which could be Twitter's new logo.

X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, is to start charging some users a $1 annual subscription for the ability to perform certain actions such as posting, reposting, and replying.
The Elon Musk-owned platform announced the new program in a post on Tuesday, saying that new unverified users in New Zealand and the Philippines will be required to pay $1 a year, adding that existing accounts are not affected.
New users who choose not to subscribe will only be able to take read-only actions, such as reading posts, watching videos, and following accounts.
The move follows increasing speculation that the platform would soon launch some kind of subscription tier for those currently using X for free.
“Starting today, we're testing a new program (Not A Bot) in New Zealand and the Philippines,” X said in its message on Tuesday. “New, unverified accounts will be required to sign up for a $1 annual subscription to be able to post & interact with other posts. Within this test, existing users are not affected.”
The company said the test has been introduced “to bolster our already successful efforts to reduce spam, manipulation of our platform and bot activity, while balancing platform accessibility with the small fee amount," adding: "It is not a profit driver.”
So far, it said, subscription options have turned out to be the most effective way to tackle bots and spam on the platform.
Musk, who acquired X -- then Twitter -- last year for $44 billion, said last month that X was “moving to having a small monthly payment,” claiming it was the only way to effectively deal with the “vast armies of bots” plaguing the platform.

Content from the more malicious bots can fill up DM inboxes and replies with spam, hateful content, or material aimed at swaying elections. Musk believes that charging a fee will work against bot operators, making it more expensive to set up fake accounts and, with a new payment method necessary for each one, more troublesome, too.

Discord is getting a big update that gives users more ways to pay

Discord announced several updates that are coming to the popular communication service this fall, and many of them focus on monetization. Although Discord and all of its core features will remain free to use, it announced new features that will open up more avenues for people to pay for account customization or the use of apps built into Discord's API.

An in-app Shop is currently in testing with Discord Nitro subscribers and will soon be available for anyone using Discord. In that shop, people can spend real money to purchase collectible avatar decorations and profile effects, like one that sees the user's profile image filled up with a magic potion. Slightly discounted for Nitro members, these customization options can be permanently equipped to profiles after purchase, so quirky avatar decorations are no longer seasonal.

X now offers audio and video calls, but it’s easy to turn off
The new X sign replacing the Twitter logo on the company's headquarters in San Francisco.

A couple of months after landing the CEO job at X (formerly Twitter) in May, Linda Yaccarino said: “X will be the platform that can deliver, well ... everything.”

Part of that includes audio and video calls, which the company has just started to roll out for users globally.
