Creating RSS Feeds for Twitter

Creating RSS Feeds for Twitter

We all know that Twitter is a well known social media platform. However, despite of being such popular it doesn’t offer any RSS Feeds. But here, we have come up with an amazing solution with which you can easily generate RSS feeds for twitter search results, user timelines, favorites, lists as well as new twitter collections.

Yes, RSS feeds help you to use Twitter data at various other places but twitter offers no option to follow its RSS feeds and hence we need to adopt other ways to create twitter RSS feeds. RSS feeds can be created in two ways either by writing the twitter app or use the simple trick described here.

Creating RSS Feeds for Twitter

Twitter RSS Feeds:

Twitter offers JavaScript based widgets which are used to embed user timelines and twitter search results into your website. Here, the HTML Twitter widgets must be transformed into regular XML feeds using a simple Google Script which can be written as follows:

  • Log on to Twitter Website, go to Settings> Widgets and then select “Create New Widget”. Separate widgets can be created for user timelines, favorites, Twitter lists, collections and search results.
  • After creating this new widget, note down this Widget ID which will be available in the widget URL. The Id is a long string of numbers.
  • Then create a copy of Google Script and select Run> Twitter_RSS to enable the script.
  • Then go to Script Editor, Publish> Deploy as Web App and then select “Save New version”.

Google Script is now created and hence a separate URL for RSS web app will be created. Now, add the Twitter Widget ID to this URL and your Twitter RSS Feed is ready.

This RSS will possess complete details about the tweet along with date when the particular tweet was posted. It will also include the name of the twitter user of the respective tweet. If you wish to create more Twitter RSS Feeds then you can follow the similar process.

So, now like other social media accounts, your Twitter account also has RSS Feeds and hence it will be now easy for you to use your Twitter data where you wish to. At first, it will seem a bit tough but then you will be used to it and creating Twitter Feeds will be a child’s play for you.
