How To Follow Any Twitter List In An RSS Reader

Editor’s Note: Here’s a quick little post with a great idea. I never even thought of organizing list following this way! Great tip, Mana! – Lara

Tweets are very similar to article headlines so an RSS feed may be the right solution for those who want to read tweets alongside their news in a reader. Twitter has an RSS solution only for Favorites, so what to do about the other lists?

Here is a very simple and quick solution:

  1. Create a list of tweeps you’d like to follow, or simply access an existing list. If you haven’t created a list before, look in the right column of your Twitter account and click “New list.” Then follow the flow.
  2. Copy URL of list.
  3. Go to and follow the two easy steps needed to generate an RSS feed.
  4. Copy the generated RSS url
  5. Enter RSS url in your reader to create subscription

To read multiple lists just repeat the process.
Happy reading! :)

    I tried it with 2 lists and it didn’t work.

    @Tarahfo which part of it didn’t work? I just replicated it with 3 other lists and it worked fine. Send me a dm on twitter with more detail and let’s see if we can figure it out. :)

    I use a similar RSS technique it to keep up with important hashtags that I don’t want to miss while I’m offline. Simply search for the hashtag on and it offers the results up as a feed as well.

    Would you want to do that? Who can tweet somthing in 140 characters that you need to set up a feed for. But i guess if you want that is always an option.

    Aarrgghh!! I’ve just wasted a million years searching the Twitter help section for a way to find the RSS feeds from my lists. I’m very surprised that a modern social platform such as Twitter does not provide RSS feeds for lists! Wouldn’t that be a totally logical thing to do? I can’t believe this is the solution! But thanks anyways. I guess I’ll have to settle for this for now :-)

    The site is down:

    This Google App Engine application is temporarily over its serving quota. Please try again later.

    Too bad I can’t use it. :( But will try again later. Hehe. Thanks for the post! ^^
