Twitter bot to promote learning of Linux functions through the circulation of a 'Man page' a day. Link: https://twitter.com/manpagedujour
With thanks to @andreakbyrne whose passion for learning through the Linux manual led to the development of the service.
A tweet is created daily with a link to a Linux manual page. Generated from an index of Man pages, the specific page is generated at random and so there is a potential for collision every once in a while.
The index is based on the Man pages available on the Man Pages Online project: http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/
During the course of my reseach I discovered that this type of Twitter feed was previously attempted here, thought it may not have been automated: https://twitter.com/manpageaday
There may be other options for those shopping around.
##Index generation within Linux
To see the manpages available to you in your own distro, two commands can be followed:
