Tweeper 1.1.0 released, Twitter to RSS without promoted tweets

Tweeper is a web scraper which converts Twitter and other social media websites to RSS.

On June 27th 2017 version 1.1.0 of Tweeper has been released. The tweeper Debian package has also been updated.

For PHP composer users there is also ao2/tweeper on packagist, which means that tweeper can be installed and run with these commands:

$ composer global require ao2/tweeper
$ ~/.config/composer/vendor/bin/tweeper

A notable change in this release is that promoted tweets are now filtered out from the user timeline when scraping the Twitter.com page; this prevents annoying advertisements to pollute the RSS feed.

Here are the NEWS file entries:

News for v1.1.0:
