A couple of weeks ago I made a Twitter and Facebook “bot” using IFTTT and Google Sheets to post a random number every day to novelty accounts.

The novelty accounts should be at the bottom of this post. If not, here are the links for the Random Number of the Day Twitter Page and the Random Number of the Day Facebook Page.

I recorded myself making this bot, and posted that video along with some narration to YouTube:
