User Updates as RSS Feed in New Twitter

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
New Twitter doesn't have a button on users' profile pages anymore that allows you to subscribe to their messages as an RSS feed. When you're on a profile page and try to subscribe using your browser's built-in feed subscription mechanism, you get a feed of your own favorite tweets (WTF!). You can still get a feed of a user's updates by doing the following:
  1. Grab there user name (e.g., mashable).
  2. Punch it into to get the associated user ID.
  3. Prepend "" to that ID.
  4. Append ".rss" to that.
To automate this, you can use this little Web page I threw together that uses's AJAX Web service.
