How to access your friends tweets on Twitter via RSS

Written by Matthew Scharley at Tuesday, 14 August 2012 - 11:19

This is a quick note to get some information back out in the public that was lost when I moved my website. Hopefully that won’t happen again now.

Quite a while back now Twitter disabled simple authentication. Apparently there were lots of people using the Twitter API directly in a basic RSS reader and requiring OAuth broke those peoples use-case for the API.

I created a web application in PHP which handles the OAuth for you and exposes a set of obfuscated URL’s that you can access without any authentication from any device. Sadly I’m not able to host a copy of this any more, but the code is still freely available and it doesn’t take much to host it yourself.
