Nigerians Develops a Twitter Bot to Help you â€œShoot your Shotsâ€
Connect with your crush on Twitter with the help of twinderbot
As a Twitter user, then you should be familiar with â€œshooting your shotâ€, and ifÂ you don’t know.Â It means to take a pretty chance and talk to that boy/girl that you think is cute. Well, people have been shooting shots but despite of being the second largest users of Twitter in Africa, Nigerians has taken the stuff to another level.
A Nigerian developer, Timi Ajiboye has created a bot known as Twinder (@twinderbot), which can basically be described as Twinder for Twitter â€“ the bot helps you match with your twitter crushes.
How it work?
- Simply follow the bot.
- Send a DM to the bot with the handle of the person you want to shoot at.
- If your crush, in turn, sends a DM with your handle, the bot will let you both know that you like each other.
If the user’s shot is successful, s/he will get a DM from Twinder with the message,
â€œYay! You have matched with [your crushes handle]. Coast is clear! Slide into the DMs now!!!â€.
If there are no hits on your shot, you just get â€œblueticksâ€ â€“ the bot even warns you not to hold your breath.
A few people have got there arrows on target while some misses theirs. See sample below;

Twinder claims that it will never reveal your shots, so donâ€™t worry if you donâ€™t succeed, only the devs and you know about it. So far, the bot has over 570 followers, we donâ€™t have stats on how many were successful and how many were a miss but if youâ€™ve been curved before, you should probably try Twinder and cross your fingers that maybe, maybe someone out there feels something for all the memes you have been posting.
