Support » Plugin: WP-Lifestream2 » Twitter broken as of June 11

  • Adding/updating Twitter feeds stopped working as of 6/11 — I’m sure it’s due to a change on their end. Any chance of a bug fix? Here’s the error message:

    Error fetching feed from http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/j_l_r.rss?page=1&count=20&source=twitterandroid (A feed could not be found at . This does not appear to be a valid RSS or Atom feed.)....

    <errors>
    <error code="34">Sorry, that page does not exist</error>
    </errors>

  • OK, I figured out a messy workaround. According to this support page, Twitter API no longer supports RSS feeds AT ALL. There are third party services that will turn your Twitter into an RSS feed.

    In /extensions/twitter/extension.inc.php I altered this function (at line 61):

    function get_url()
    {
    return 'http://www.twitter-rss.com/user_timeline.php?screen_name='.$this->get_option('username');
    }

    Update: twitter-rss.com seems to be dead. Here’s a version using a different service:

    function get_url()
    {
    return 'http://rss4twitter.appspot.com/getrss?name='.$this->get_option('username');
    }
