— -- There's a lot to unpack from Tinder's 30 tweet rant but perhaps the most interesting tidbit is the dating app's assertion that it has "many users" in North Korea.

The lengthy Twitter rant began Tuesday night in response to an article in Vanity Fair's September issue claiming the app has changed dating norms and has instead fostered a culture of casual sex and few relationships.

Tinder chose to fire back -- in true Millennial fashion -- on Twitter.

Of all the examples the Tinder team tweeted about people making connections, the one that caught the eye of Twitter users was the assertion people in North Korea are swiping right and left to find true love or perhaps even just a new friend.

Tinder did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment, however a company representative told the New York Times: "We have users in all 196 countries, including China and North Korea. We cannot disclose additional information on our user base there."
