Set up your own Twitter RSS Feed. Here's How!

  • Twitter used to publish a link to our RSS feed so that we could link to our tweets but I can't seem to find it. Am I missing something? The same question applies to our RSS feeds for topics or hashtags. Where can I find that information?

Twitter RSS FeedAnswer: Nope, it's not just you. In fact, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and other popular social sites have continued to make it more difficult to find user RSS feeds. It's to the point now that unless you are a true geek, finding these so-called "public" feeds is almost impossible.

Worse, Twitter has said that they will stop support for RSS, XML, and ATOM feed formats in March of 2013, advocating users to switch to JSON or some other API method before that date.

Fortunately, we've got you covered. At least for the time being, you can access an RSS feed of your most recent activity at a sample URL like the below.

https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=INSERT Twitter USERNAME

Next, if you are looking for RSS specific feeds for favorites, mentions, hashtags, or lists try these:

  • Get the favorite tweets of any Twitter user
    https://api.twitter.com/1/favorites.rss?screen_name=USERNAME.rss

  • Get mentions of any Twitter user as an RSS Feed [example]
    http://search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=to@USERNAME

  • Get the RSS feed for any search query (or hashtags) on Twitter
    http://search.twitter.co...
