Tinder, everyone's favorite aggressively superficial, swipe-based dating app, just cut out the middle man. Whereas before you'd have to use actual words to make first contact, you're now free to jump straight into self-destructing-sext land. Ah, to be young and in love.

The new Snapchat-esque feature, dubbed Moments, allows users to share annotated photos with their various matches. Though unlike Snapchat, which only allows photos a 10-second lifespan maximum, any smutty selfies you send through Moments will be available for a full 24 hours before disappearing. Which, in millennial years, is practically a lifetime. So it still doesn't quite have the appeal of the truly ephemeral sext.

There's still no word on when you'll be seeing Moments rolling out, but Tinder CEO Sean Rad believes it will "help users get to know their matches better." Because all these young 20-somethings will surely be sending pictures of their sturdy, well-endowed... bookcases. [Bloomberg]
