One RSS to view them all (identi.ca & twitter merged feeds)

You all know about identi.ca & twitter
If you dont, then perhaps your are that kind of people that have a life or even free time!

I am a newbie on both of them, but i I am already frustrate about twitter’s microblogging features.
The web layout is too complex, I cant login with my openid account but the most depressing thing is that i cant see my friends timeline via rss!

The main problem is that twitter have changed to oauth and you can use an application with twitter api.

But Why God, Why?

So i singed with gtweetapp to finally have my friend timeline to rss feed.

Then i wanted google reader to subscribe to my rss feeds (identi.ca and twitter) but google reader doesnt merge the rss feeds.

So i used yahoo pipes to merge, sort & unique feature and then subscribed the result of yahoo pipes to google reader.

And finally i can read all my notices & twitts and my “friends” notices & twitts in my RSS reader!

So is this worth it ?
we ‘ll see in near future :)

till then happy tw…. oh get some work done, you lazy bastards!

    You will be crafty if you manage to do *exactly* what Richard does, using emacs, an html page, PURL and tricklepost.

    Go on, and if you manage to do it I’ll eat my feet.

    I create a small app (http://socialfeed.apphb.com) for getting your own rss timeline, I will see your links about getting friend’s time line!
