Twitter have killed of RSS feeds completely in API v1.1. I used to use this nice little website (http://roomj.com/twitter/connect.php) to pull out RSS from Twitter,
but that alas is broken.
Edit: @tylercal has now updated http://roomj.com/twitter to handle the new v1.1 API – so if you want to avoid the hassle of installing your own just use his. It produces a nicer feed too with images from tweets displayed ‘n’ all.
Here are the steps I followed to get RSS coming out again at my own site http://www.ianchanning.com/twitter-rss-parser/?home
Google search for ‘twitter to rss’ lead me to the tiny tiny RSS forum (http://tt-rss.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2229). The awesome user jdelamater99 there has created a PHP application on Github that you can install on your site to convert the twitter output into RSS.
- Create a twitter app (https://dev.twitter.com/apps/new)
- Once created, click on ‘Create my access token’ at the bottom of the ‘Details’ tab
- Look in the OAuth tab
Download the Twitter-RSS-Parser from github (https://github.com/jdelamater99/Twitter-RSS-Parser/archive/master.zip)
Unzip it and FTP it to your site, note that I renamed the directory to be twitter-rss-parser all lower case. I think github also stick a ‘-master’ on the end of the directory that you don’t want. Obviously you can change this as you like
Copy the config.php-dist file to config.php
Edit the config.php file and modify the following lines to match the OAuth Settings above
$consumer_key = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; $consumer_secret = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; $token = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'; $token_secret = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
Goto the URL you uploaded e.g. http://ianchanning.com/twitter-rss-parser/?home to check that it works
