After I wrote twitstash, one of the first ideas I had was to build a Twitter bot to convert every tweet I send into broken English (or “Engrish”) and repost it. The bot eventually grew into an abstract framework to run tweets through any pair of intermediate languages, with a predefined number of “back-and-forth” cycles (similar to the way the site Translation Party works) and post that to another account. This framework was packaged into what is now called twanslationparty.
