I am looking for a way to get an RSS-Feed that serves the same content as the main view on Twitter. I am following about 20 people at the moment and I could of course get an RSS-Feed from each of them separately, but I don't want my RSS-Reader to be cluttered with 20 Feeds if I can aggregate them into a single feed.

I don't want to maintain two different lists, the one on twitter and the one for my RSS-Feed. What I am looking for is a service that aggregates those RSS-Feeds via the list on Twitter. Or maybe Twitter offers such an RSS-Feed all by itself and I haven't been able to locate it. Any hints how I should approach this problem? I am using the Google-Reader if it makes any difference.

If you go to Twitter Lists to RSS, you can create an RSS feed for a Twitter list.

I never used the list-feature before on twitter, thanks for pointing that one out, +1 for that! Unfortunately the web application that should create an RSS feed from the list doesn't work for me. When I create the RSS feed and try to follow it, the server tells me: Error: Not Found The requested URL /USERNAME/lists/testing-rss-list/statuses.rss was not found on this server. USERNAME is of course my username on Twitter. Maybe something is wrong at the moment, will try it later... –  Demento Apr 13 '11 at 6:50
Ooops, premature +1 call... I lack the reputation on this site to give a +1... –  Demento Apr 13 '11 at 6:51
+1: Now I can :) Unfortunately the application still doesn't work for me. Same error I posted a week ago. Can someone confirm that the service is not working or is it me doing something wrong? –  Demento Apr 21 '11 at 16:09
Still the same issue half a year later. I am giving up on this one :(. –  Demento Sep 4 '11 at 10:29
Note that twitter lists won't include native retweets –  Chris J Dec 17 '11 at 3:28
