I'm searching for twitter channels that would provide me daily/hourly sentences in German.

(I can read the news, I understand the titles, but diving in the full articles is still difficult for me. I want something more shallow, superficial, easy to grasp, with fewer words to search for their meaning.)

It's not difficult to find quotation feeds in English, French and Spanish: they could be about anything Zen, Philosophy, Love, Thinkings...

However I have not managed to find any one in German, because I'm not fluent enough to perform the search.

Do you know of any ?

That would greatly improve my level in German that is constantly dropping since I don't practice it daily for too long now. Inside my Tweet List, it would be the perfect place, since I peek at it several times a day.

  • I searched for zitate, zen, meinung. Others I don't remeber of. Not sure I tried proverb. Doing it right now. Commented Jan 8, 2017 at 11:01
  • With "Zen Sprichtwort" it is a little better. Commented Jan 8, 2017 at 11:08

    "Sprichwort" nicht "Sprichtwort"

    I wouldn't recommend using twitter as a source for learning german (nor any other language), because people tend to not write complete sentences there. Or they use a lot of stupid abbreviations, incorrect grammar or spelling.

    Following German newspapers might be an idea, e.g. twitter.com/SZ_Wissen

I don´t have twitter, but I think you can search for something like:

  1. https://twitter.com/sinnsturm?lang=de (there you get some posts)
  2. https://twitter.com/chatvgn?lang=de (funny german sms conversations)
  3. https://twitter.com/dudenverlag?lang=de (the pure german language)
  4. https://twitter.com/landderideen?lang=de (some stuff)

I hope it will help you ;)


Not a twitter feed. But a long list: https://de.wikiquote.org/wiki/Deutsche_Sprichwörter
