April Fools’ Day has come and gone, and that means you can now trust what companies post on social media. As always, some companies get crafty in their pranks. Here’s a few of them. 

Spotify

Each week Spotify does a “Discover Weekly” playlist that compiles songs from various genres and pulls them into one playlist. Spotify decided to throw a curveball and give us a “Discover Weekly,” all disco all the time. It definitely was a welcome surprise to listen to.

Duolingo

Duolingo is an app that helps its users learn new languages by sending push notifications. For April Fools’ Day,  the app decided to take that a step further by introducing its logo to “follow you” around all day to remind you to practice. It also doesn’t help that the bird has three different moods — encouraging, disappointed and passive aggressive — that you wouldn’t

want to see from a giant bird that follows you around all day.

Tinder

The company teased a new feature of adding a badge that would commemorate people by listing their actual height. Tinder said, “We’re expecting to see a huge decline in the 80 percent of males on Tinder who are claiming that they are well over 6 feet. That’s fine by us — as long as we’re all living our truths.”
