#Tinderfish ##Catfish Guys with the Tinder API
Tinderfish uses Neal Kemp's ruby implementation of the reverse engineered Tinder API to relay messages between two victim profiles through a fake profile. As far as the victims are concerned, they're talking to a match. In reality, they're talking directly to each other thanks to Tinderfish.
Create a fake facebook profile and grab the profile ID for the
FACEBOOK_ID constant. Visit the link in the tinder_pyro documentation to grab your
OAUTH_TOKEN. You will need to install the Tinder app on your phone to verify your account via text message. I had to wait almost a week before my account became valid, likely due to it being a new facebook profile.
Add in your slack URL (We use a private group) and facebook, ID and TOKEN.
tinderfish = Tinderfish.new
Assuming you already have matches... (if not just run
matches = tinderfish.get_nearby_users followed by
tinderfish.generate_matches(matches, 3) where 3 is how many of your matches you want to swipe on).
This will print a list of victims and their bios to your console. Select the worst and match them up by using the VID of each user

It's outdated now, but an interesting look into how to build something like this.
