What the Shot

On Twitter


WTS is an unique quiz game for all movie lovers running since 2010 on Twitter. It was developed in part of the Whatthemovie's project. Follow @whattheshot to play.


Every ten minutes, a snapshot from a movie is sent. You have five minutes to guess the movie by simply replying the title of the movie — we support short & foreign titles.

Depending of the difficulty of the shot — easy, medium, hard —, the first to guess the movie will get up to ten points, and the others will get some points.

You get double of points by answering the full title in its original language.


You can send commands to the bot. For example, send rank to get your position in the tops, record to get your personal records and time to see how fast you answered correctly the shot.
