Flattr Tiny Tiny RSS

by Ben

Tiny Tiny RSS – Flattr.com.

I’ve been a big fan of Tiny Tiny RSS since switching from the now defunct Google Reader.  (It’s still hard for me to believe Google discontinued it.)  I had a small Flattr balance from users of my open source software and readers of this blog, so I decided to pay it forward by flattring them.  I still love the Flattr concept, and hope it will continue to spread.

 

RSS Feeds Directory for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and More

RSS Feeds Directory for Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and More. I came to this site looking for individual Facebook status feeds in RSS (which aren’t included), but I found several other feeds for common services.

RSS it for Me! – RSS generator for Twitter (previously 'RSS 4 Twitter'). Unfortunately, Twitter killed off its RSS feeds. This service seems to work pretty well for following all tweets from a user.
