tech-tricksThere are few reasons you’d actually want to add a Twitter account as an RSS feed, but some people may want to do it. If you’re one of these people, then there’s an easy way to add the Twitter account to your preferred reader.

 

First, you need to visit this website – TwIDder. It allows you to convert a Twitter user name into an ID number.

 

Then, you need to open your preferred RSS reader, and then add a new subscription. You’ll want to use this specific code:

  • http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/xxx.rss

You’ll want to replace the “xxx” part of the URL with the ID code. Then, add the subscription, and then you’ll be able to follow the Twitter account as an RSS feed.
