@ZwoSchlagzeilen is a Twitter-Bot that mixes recent headlines of leading German newspapers and posts one of them each hour. Sometimes it produces funny results. It is basically the German variant for the American archetype @TwoHeadlines.

It uses feedparser to fetch headlines from some German newspaper RSS services and tries to match headline parts by using “right neighbor” lists provided by libleipzig.

The source code is a Python 2 script named “zweischlagzeilen” and can be examined in the github repository.
