Importing from Twitter Feeds

We’d like to note that Twitter no longer provides RSS feeds for user accounts or topics, so we’ve had to find other third-party services to generate RSS feeds for pages.

IMPORTANT:  First test your RSS feeds on  our demo sites to ensure that they perform to your standard. That being said, WP RSS Aggregator will be able to import RSS feeds available for Twitter following the steps below.

Finding the RSS Feed

The first step is creating the RSS Feed. You can use this site to create the RSS feed: http://twitrss.me/. There are a few other services available online too.

This site allows you to create RSS feeds for Twitter. You can enter the URL for users as well as live searches. All you have to do is enter the Twitter handle or the search term, and then click a button to generate the RSS feed.
