Github page for TwitterRSS-Enhancer

My first release for Github, ever. Hooray!

A need came along for me to have an RSS for twitter status updates.  That was a tough enough challenge as Twitter decided to hide this feature.  After so digging I found you can get a Twitter RSS feed using this link:


As you can see by that twitter provided RSS, it includes the screen name at the front, and also doesn’t have any “twitter syntax highlighting.”

All my code does is, strip the first characters with the username because they are not needed.  Then takes all usernames, hashtags, and links and rewrites them as clickable links.

Here is an example of what the RSS feed looks like after having my code rewrite it:
