How Twitter RSS feeds for Tweets, Searches, Hashtags, Lists or Favorites used to work

UPDATE: Twitter no longer supports RSS. For many purposes, a Twitter Widget might be a better solution. 

How to create a feed manually:

Just put your username where the blank appears:

  1. http://twitter.com/favorites/_______.rss
  2. http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/_______.rss

For example:

  1. http://twitter.com/favorites/TweetSmarter.rss
  2. http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/TweetSmarter.rss

For search results, the RSS/Atom feeds can still be found here:

  1. http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=search%20term
  2. http://search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=search%20terms

Just change “search%20terms” to your search terms. (If you’re searching for more than one word, you need to put a “%20″ between each word.)

For hashtag searches, you need to put a “%23″ before the word. For example, if you’re searching for #love, the URLs would be

  1. http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=search%23love
  2. http://search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=search%23love

One-click RSS creator from any browser:

Want to automatically find the RSS feed for any Twitter user? It’s easy! Drag this box:  Twitter RSS to your bookmark bar, and click it when you’re at any user’s Twitter.com page. It will add an “RSS” link to the very bottom of their bio that will look like this:

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless imagine if you added some
    great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Great blog!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!
