How do I get Twitter lists as RSS streams???

game-designers on twitter

I wonder why Twitter lists don’t expose an RSS. Anyway the rest part of the API does, and with a very simple url pattern, which we’ve found developing Licorize / Twitter integration. Just use this:

http://api.twitter.com/1/%5Byour Twitter name]/lists/[your list name]/statuses.atom

So for example, being I “ppolsinelli” on Twitter and one of my lists is “game-designers” here

http://twitter.com/#!/ppolsinelli/game-designers

the RSS feed is here:

http://api.twitter.com/1/ppolsinelli/lists/game-designers/statuses.atom

and this is the RSS url that you can feed to your reader, e.g. Google reader.

Google searching for this problems led me to tools, services, installations, Yahoo pipes… but it is as easy as shown above.
