The New York Times better be knocking down this woman’s door after she discovered the Bachelor winner through some impressive investigative skills. On Dec. 28, Twitter user @clur19 admitted she stalked a Bachelor contestant’s Venmo friends and discovered Colton would go on to be the winner.
What’s the most psycho thing you did in 2019? I’ll go first! I stalked Colton’s Venmo friends to see who he picked and then I knew who won the Bachelor months before anyone else did.

Before we get into the responses, let’s just pause to talk about how stalking people on Venmo has become A Thing. On the surface, it seems odd: scrolling through transactions for food, concerts, rent, etc. But take a closer look and you get a glimpse Instagram could never give.
Venmo transactions reveal how much people are spending, who they’re spending it with and who pays for what within relationships. And that’s exactly how Clare put the pieces together.
Give her…. the…. NOBEL PRIZE !!!! https://t.co/z9j65fPdo1

Twitter users started sharing their own stalking stories and it was the gift that kept on giving this holiday season.
Using just a first name, I found social media profiles for a boy that I always see on campus but never talk to & he eventually came up to me a few weeks ago and introduced himself and I had to pretend I didn’t already know everything about him and I was so scared of being caught

A couple of years ago a really cute kid was painting my house. From a tshirt he was wearing, I found out that in high school he made a homemade bomb and planted it on his chemistry teachers doorstep.

Some of them weren’t the super sleuth Clare was, but we love them for it anyway.
Made my yoga instructor tell me the name of a guy in my class then found all of his social media. Did you know when you look at someone’s LinkedIn it tells them? Cause I do now.

Found my anesthesiologist from my rhinoplasty on LinkedIn to ask him out. Turns out I had also asked him out while waking up from anesthesia and did not remember. I am my own best wingman.

And some were just brilliant.
Made a fake tinder and set up my ex that cheated on me while I was on vacation, made him bring coffee and also made him wait an hour aimlessly searching for said girl.

Found my dog park crush on insta w/o knowing his name by looking up surrounding college’s lax rosters all the way back to 2015 solely because I saw him holding a lacrosse stick at the dog park once.
