Exclusive version of Tinder for celebs only being tested

Looks like the ubiquitous dating app Tinder is testing an exclusive version known as "Tinder Select." Muggles need not apply. 

Tech Crunch reports it’s for “celebrities and people who do really well on Tinder,” including supermodels, CEOs, and other “attractive/upwardly affluent” types. 

Here’s how it works: Tinder invites certain users to the platform, some of whom can then nominate others to join. However, the people who are nominated do not have the power to nominate anyone else, thus keeping Tinder Select from spreading to the masses and the muggles.

It's not clear how long Select has been in operation, but Tech Crunch says it's been around for least six months. 

Apparently the idea is to keep the dating pool small and exclusive so as not to dilute it. Barron's Next described it this way "it’s exclusive and aspirational, something like the Amex Black card... with a different set of benefits."
