How to Create Your Own Twitter RSS Feed

Use it to create a custom Twitter list

What to Know

  • Type a Twitter handle, search term, or hashtag into the corresponding field, then select Fetch RSS.
  • You can copy the feed's URL to a browser bookmark, or save it to an app like Evernote (with the Web Clipper extension).

While Twitter no longer has an RSS feed, there are other ways to create a Twitter RSS feed. In this guide, we'll tell you how to make one using or by copying it to an RSS reader.

Visit in Your Web Browser is by far one of the fastest and simplest ways to generate an RSS feed from Twitter. You don't need to do anything technical, and you can create your feeds within seconds.

Screenshot of the homepage has two options: RSS feeds for a particular user's tweets, and RSS feeds for a term that you'd typically plug into the Twitter search field. The latter is super helpful if you want to follow trending terms or hashtags.

For the Twitter user RSS feed option: Type the Twitter handle of the user you want into the corresponding field. Optionally include all the replies they send to other users by checking off the With replies? box.

For the Twitter search RSS feed option: Type the search term into the corresponding field.

Select the big blue Fetch RSS button to create your feed.

It may take several seconds, so be patient while the page loads.

Copy Your RSS Feed URL and Save It Somewhere

If you're using a browser like Google Chrome, you'll see a lot of code on the next page. If you're using a browser like Mozilla Firefox, you'll see a feed of posts with the option to add them to your Live Bookmarks.

What you really want, ideally, is the URL of the feed. If your feed is for a user, it should look something like this:[USERNAME]

If your feed is a search term, it should look something like this:[SEARCH TERM]

Add the link to your browser bookmarks or save it somewhere (like in Evernote using the Web Clipper extension) so you never lose it and can access it whenever you want. Then you can go ahead and use the feed with the RSS-friendly service of your choice.
