That aside, what’s with all this disrespect RSS is getting lately? First Google Reader takes a hike, and now the Twitter API has abandoned it! Well I for one love RSS. I think it’s a great and versatile technology, and I think everyone would be mighty upset if it went away and they discovered just how many things rely on it.
This post started here: I wanted to post tweets from both my business’ twitter account, and random relevant accounts around the twitterverse, to my business’s website; and I didn’t want to use crappy, rigid, pre-style apps and plugins to do it. This used to be no problem, as Twitter would actually provide you with RSS links for everything you could possibly think of! No longer!
But here’s where Google gets some points back. Using Twitter’s new API, I was able to generate a Google script that would translate searches and feeds into proper usable RSS feeds! I’ll ramble no longer. The solution I found worked for me right off the hop, but I won’t post it here. I appreciate useful, sneaky, simple, well written teachings like this so much, I wouldn’t think of stealing the man’s traffic.
