which contains a random word and its definition.

The main process flow is the following:

  1. Retrieve a random word and its definition through the use of a 3rd-party API
  2. Generate an HTML page with the retrieved data using a template
  3. Render the HTML page into an image
  4. Post the image to social media

The social media posts are performed every day through the Twitter schedule Action
