Using Twitter Search for RSS and Atom Feeds

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Twitter used to feature a handy RSS feed button when ever you’d do a search so you could easily follow a topic in a feed reader. They have since taken that down but you can still get the results you want in a feed using this query:

http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=phrase

or if you’d prefer to exclude spammy urls in the results, remove the http with this query:

http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=phrase%20-http

Note: %20 represents a space of course
