How to subscribe to a Twitter RSS feed

Yellow Twitter

Ever wanted to follow a Twitter account by integrating it to your favourite RSS Feed reader? Me too. Twitter claims that the RSS feed of each Twitter user is located below the timeline. I may be blind but I can’t find it.

So here is how you can solve this problem in five easy steps:

  1. Go on this handy mini-website: IDfromuser.com to get the user ID of the person you want to follow using its RSS feed
  2. Get the Twitter ID by typing the username of the person you want to follow
    (ex: “ldebrot”)
  3. Copy the ID
    (ex: 11999682 for ldebrot)
  4. Insert the Twitter ID into the following URL: “https://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/” + user ID + “.rss”
    (ex: “https://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/11999682.rss”
  5. Subscribe to this RSS feed in your favourite RSS feed reader or aggregator

DONE! I hope it worked for as well as it worked for me!
