Hi! I would be interested to know if any of you poddies know of a Twitter user who gives out a Chengyu a day. Tried looking around, but without success. Thanks!

shenyajin, she's asking if we know anyone who does.


I know that @BoydJones dishes out the odd chengyu here and there, as do I @chabuduo. But I dunno anyone who does it every day without fail... maybe u could start? :)

you could just put some chengyu on your anki and then have it show one chengyu every day :D...

actually let me ask a friend how easy it would be to automatise this kind of thing so we could put it out on twitter...

ok, I just started one at

At this point, it's still being done manually, but I'm working with a friend on setting it up automatically, which then should give you a chengyu a day for at least the next 4 years to come (and most of them quite frequently used ones too)...
