How to make an RSS feed for your Twitter lists

Me on Twitter!Twitter lists are a handy way of grouping people you follow into specialities (I’ve set ones up for artists, journalists, and photographers I follow). I’ve set one up for everyone in Galway: newspapers, theatre companies, sports organisations and so on (if you wanted added, email me or tweet me at @allancavanagh).

I wanted to export this list as an RSS feed so it could be accessible to people who don’t have Twitter accounts. I’ve successfully done this with @GalwayTweets but only after web supremo Frank Prendergast figured it out for me (there’s very little up to date information out there).

Twitter has RSS feeds for your lists, it’s just a matter of knowing where to look. The URL for your feed is[YourTwitterName]/lists/[nameoflist]/statuses.atom (don’t forget to remove the square brackets).

That worked for me. I hope it works for you!
