Lena Dunham thinks Tinder is a 'tool for murder'

Los Angeles - Lena Dunham thinks the dating app Tinder is a "tool for murder".

The 28-year-old actress - who has been dating Jack Antonoff since 2012 - admitted she is "scared" by the matchmaking mobile application because she thinks it could be used by certain people to help them kill rather than to search for a potential partner.

Speaking in a PEOPLE.com video, she said: "Tinder scares me.

"I ... wait, it's not about being famous, it's not about anything, it's not about being in a committed relationship, I believe Tinder is a tool for murder."

The Girls star also doesn't think social networking site Twitter is safe. On Monday morning at the Golden Globes she vowed to quit the micro-blogging site after receiving death threats.

But she was still on the social networking site shortly after making the comments and confused her 1.97 million followers by sending a tweet about the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles.

Lena then clarified that she had in fact uninstalled the Twitter app from her phone and managed to send a message from her own account by asking one of her pals to do it on her behalf.

The star then called for safer social networking sites and apologised to her supporters for any confusion.
