Citation Hunt

A tool for looking up random sentences with {{citation needed}} tags in Wikipedia is Citation Hunt.

This can be used to help find a random place to start improving Wikipedia.

It is not an efficient method for improving Wikipedia (given how easy for an editor to add a {{citation needed}} tag compared to how difficult it is to understand and locate an appropriate source). However, I think it is more useful than clicking Wikipedia's "Random article" link since it can help focus your mind on a single sentence claim; when I open a random wikipedia article and see dozens of reference tags and paragraphs of text the phrase "Where do I even start?" comes to mind.
