Using it's own algorithm Yahoo! probes users' Twitter usage data, or Twi-Chi, to reveal what kind of "Social Mojo" they possess.

Entering a Twitter username will evoke one of 17 possible Twitter-personalities, from Cheerleader to Wall Flower.

Users can share their results on Twitter or Facebook, with a link back to the website.
