Twitter has made it unnecessarily difficult to find the RSS feed for a user’s tweets. Previously you could see a link to the RSS feed directly from the user’s Twitter page, but not anymore. Sure, you can sign up for Twitter and subscribe to users through their website, but some of us more old fashioned folks prefer just using an RSS reader.
Even though Twitter has obscured the URLs, the RSS feeds still exist. So I wrote a simple script to automatically find the RSS feed URL for a given username, which you can then use to read tweets in Google Reader (or your RSS reader of choice).
Your link will (hopefully) show up here...
If it doesn’t work, leave a comment with your browser and any error message you get, and I’ll try to fix it. But it seems to work for me.
Because Twitter is evil and horrible, they recently changed all their RSS links. So all your old ones won’t work and you’ll need new URLs. I updated the script above to now give the new (working) URLs.
Also, note that Twitter is planning to stop supporting RSS entirely some time in 2013, at which point all of these links will break.
