The Secret to Getting Sorted at Hogwarts the Easy Way
Getting sorted into your proper Hogwarts house is the quintessential Harry Potter experience . . . so much so that it's on our Harry Potter bucket list. But until now, getting sorted has been a tedious process: either digging up an online quiz or making your way through the first few stages of Pottermore. Enter SortingBot, a Twitter bot that has streamlined the process for Potterheads, bringing the sorting ceremony to the digital sphere.
To get sorted, simply follow the account and await your results. While it will take a few days due to high demand, the bot will send you a personalized limerick with your Hogwarts house result. So easy! Proving there's something to the Sorting Bot's "magic," its creator explained the algorithm in a blog post, then shared his source code with curious followers.
Which result did you get from the Sorting Bot? Whether you're a Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, or Gryffindor, the Sorting Bot is sure to make you smile with its short poems and Harry Potter references.
