Tinder is reportedly swiping left on a pair of enthusiastic Bernie Sanders supporters.

Two women who are rooting for the Democratic presidential candidate say their accounts on the dating app were locked Thursday after they sent out a series of pro-Sanders messages, according to Reuters.


Twenty-three-year-old Robyn Gedrich says for the past two weeks, she contacted 60 people daily to express her support for the Vermont senator. Her message of “Do you feel the Bern?” also included a phone number to text to receive updates and volunteer for the Sanders campaign.

Another user, Haley Lent, told Reuters she talked to as many as 100 people on Tinder. The married Iowa resident said, “I would ask them if they were going to vote in their upcoming primaries.”

“If they said no or were on the fence, I would try to talk to them and persuade them to vote.”

Both users say they received notices from Tinder saying the were unable to access their accounts because of multiple reports that they were campaigning on the app.

Tinder reps didn’t respond to the news agency’s request for comment.
