Searching via #hashtags is now a thing

Hot on the heels of Operation #Rainbow comes a less fun, but probably more practical, new feature: hashtags act as search links.

Any hashtags you use in your profile or messages will become links to a search of the phrase. So you can now find everyone who loves #pizza, #cats, and #coffee. And #rainbows, of course.

This is the first update in what we’re thinking of as the more social side of Bristlr. We want to make it easier for people to find and connect with others. We want online dating to be fun, effective, and have a social element.

If you’re wondering, the image in this post is the word cloud you get if you take all the text in everyone’s bios. Cool, right?

Operation #Rainbow

Finally, at long last, we’re pleased to announce our killer feature. A feature unique to Bristlr, and so Earth-shatteringly spectacular that it will leave all other dating apps essentially ruined.

You can make the text in your bio and messages rainbow coloured.

I know, I know, we didn’t think it was possible to achieve such technological superiority either, but we have. Just put #Rainbow in any text on Bristlr and marvel at the wonder that is, rainbow text.

And yes, my username on Bristlr is “Sausage”, what of it?
