twitter rss

This is an RSS feed for any twitter account. The motivation is to use the mac RSS visualizer with this to create an easy screen saver. So, to use it you can do one of two things:

  1. You can use this URL and pass your username and password on the command line, such as
    http://jeffpalm.com/twitterrss/?u=username&p=password
    This would be the brave approach; not because of me, but because of someone else that could steal your password, being sent in plain text. Especially, as I'm on someone else's wifi right now as I type this.
  2. Or you can copy this file and put in on your own server, and simply pass the eg parameter to the url, rather than sending your password in plain text. In order to do this you need to create a file called creds.php and put it next to the index file, that looks like this:
    <?php
    define('USERNAME',your-username);
    define('PASSWORD',your-password);
    define('EMAIL',your-email);
    ?>
    
    This will be included when you have a url, such as:
