Tweeper: a Twitter to RSS web scraper

Tweeper is a web scraper which extracts the most recent public tweets of a given user from their home page on and formats them in RSS, so the information can be conveniently accessed and collected by a feed reader.


Accessing authenticated feeds with Liferea

I use RSS/Atom feeds a lot, they are a relatively efficient way to follow stuff around the web, and they are also privacy-friendly tools to a certain degree: I can follow my friends and family on Youtube, Flickr, and even Twitter (at least as long as API 1.0 is up and running, bah...), without having to explicitly tell the companies behind those sites whom I am friend with. Privacy is not only about “what you do”, but also about “whom you know”.
