<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Grindr is down and I&#39;m currently getting hit on via Facebook chat.

Grindr, the gay social networking app, has been down for almost eight hours.

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself
