How to use Twitter’s Moments as a personal newsfeed

Excerpt: Twitter has just turned on the ability for every user to create their own “Moments” feeds on desktop computers. If you go to your Twitter on a PC and look at your home page you should see the new “Moments” option in the menu. Depending on how it is rolled out you might have to wait a while until you can create one but eventually the ability to post tweets to a stream shows up when you click on your picture on the desktop version (at the time of writing this isn’t possible on mobile).

Twitter Widgets to RSS Feed for twitter search

Excerpt: Just playing about I used Amit Argawal’s Twitter Widget to RSS feed script to make a Twitter Search Widget that you can see below Tweets about “education research” // < ![CDATA[ !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+"://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); // ]]> but then I turned that into a “readable” RSS feed via Amit’s Google script; which you can, in turn, then drop into any RSS reader saving you the trouble of going to Twitter and typing it in. Here’s the URL parsed by FeedBucket for example. Now I’ve updated this blog, I’m looking for faster ways of processing “search”; this script came in very handy. It saves me trawling mindlessly through Twitter every…
