How to Create an RSS Feed From a Custom Twitter Search

This short but detailed guide will take you step by step through the process of creating an RSS feed from a custom/advanced Twitter search.

The initial method that this guide used was via a service that’s no longer in business. Fortunately, another company has picked up where they left off and we’re back in business.

  1. To get started, head over to the website. You’ll need to create an account, or you can just use your Google or Twitter account for authentication.
  2. Visit the Twitter Advanced Search page (link will open in a new tab/window) and enter in the search criteria you want to create an RSS feed for. As illustrated in the example screenshot below, I’m searching for tweets that contain the words “Vancouver” or “Victoria” from the @SecretFlying account. When you’ve entered the term or terms you want to search for, click the Search button.
