For the past few years I've been using Google Reader to archive my Twitter and Facebook history for various reasons. Obviously yesterday's news really threw a wrench in everything.

My problem ...

I need a way to export every 'article' from 3 subscriptions I have (not just the subscription URL) and import those into a good RSS reader (open to suggestions). Anyone have any advice?

Good article here: lifehacker.com/5990456/… – Brad Patton Mar 15 '13 at 2:03
I read a few of these blog posts yesterday, but they don't really address the problem. I need something thats going to do more than just migrate the RSS URLs. As you probably know, Twitter removes tweets after a while so that URL I've been using will only show a handful of tweets and not the full archive. – Ryan Grush Mar 15 '13 at 2:22
You realize, that aside from stared items, feed items automatically get removed after 30 days right? Your started/liked posts are within the json files you get as part of takeout. – Zoredache Mar 15 '13 at 4:45
I would have to 'star' all the items for that to work and there's no mass assign feature in Reader. I'd have to do that one by one. – Ryan Grush Mar 15 '13 at 6:20
