Twitter’s back, baby

12 Comments and 22 Shares

It’s been too long. Twitter unceremoniously knee-capped their API a few years ago and a number of solutions popped up to fix the loss. However, those stopgaps also closed and left us with no good ways to read Twitter while in NewsBlur. Until now, that is.

You can now subscribe to https://twitter.com/username to get individual Twitter accounts on NewsBlur. Put them all in a folder to recreate your tweetstream.

Not only do you get the full tweetstream for that user, but you can also filter out tweets that are replies, retweets, or contain any text in them. You can also train Twitter feeds to highlight tweets that contain photos, are retweeted or liked, or have a word you want.

YouTube also deprecated their API and NewsBlur came to the rescue with native YouTube API support. Now Twitter joins that list of native support, giving you a better Twitter experience than ever before.

And because this native Twitter support takes more work than normal RSS feeds do, this feature is only available to premium subscribers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

I'm not sure I want a tweet stream in my RSS readers. There's tons of Twitter client that can do a better job. I still appreciate the effort though.

Very nice! Hopefully we will see facebook pages next (feeds for user, public/private groups and public fan pages).

How liable is support for these new systems to be killed by yt/twitter? Or are you pretty confident they're using stable APIs
samuel

I can never be sure but these APIs have been stable for a couple years now. If they yank the cord, then that's their call. I'd like to not rock the boat though, so if it works I'm happy with that.

Can we add twitter lists? or is it only profiles? ... awesome feature update!

Another feature of yesteryear Twitter RSS was following a user's liked tweets by subscribing to twitter.com/[user]/favorites. What you've already hacked together here is a beautiful thing, though.

Is the response below expected behavior? It's true I have not set it upbut the article makes no mention of this.
"Your Twitter connection isn't setup. Go to Manage - Friends and reconnect Twitter."

Yeah, I didn't bother to add that. You need to connect Twitter to get this to work.

And if I don't want to create a Twitter account, any plan to have this without twitter account ?
samuel

I would make a burner Twitter account then. I need to use your Twitter access token to assemble these feeds. That's the only way it works.

The recently-launched Leonardo is a full-featured image-editing app for iOS that offers tools you won't find on too many other comparable apps. Containing options familiar from high-end PC applications like Photoshop, Leonardo allows you to make selections using lasso and 'magic wand' tools, and create layer masks, gradients and much more. For more details head over to our sister site connect.dpreview.com.
