While tinkering with my ping.fm account, I came across one of the coolest applications I’ve seen in like 3 days which aims to help beleagured daters out of one of the most common dating binds…a bad date!
Escape My Date, in their tag line, asks:
In a sticky social situation?
Send us a Direct Message on Twitter,
and we’ll ask your friends to help you out.
All you have to do is give the program your phone number, email and authorization to access your Twitter account and voila la! They’ll tweet all of your friends to help you out of the bind.
I thought this was sort of cute, but what happens if the guy you’re out with is on your Twitter account? Ha! What a great plot twist for a book….
