Here’s a quick experiment:

You know the Magic 8-Ball ? That thing that you shake and it gives you a random answer:

Someone holding an 8-Ball

It’s a random device. It will only give you 3 types of answers:

I’ve made this: Twitter 8-Ball

It’s the same thing but using Twitter as the random generator. Ask your question and click on the ball. It will then start listening to Twitter for anyone tweeting a short phrase that can be interpreted as Magic 8-Ball answer.

And then you’ll get your answer, from an actual human being tweeting at that exact instant.

Have fun!
