- You will need the RSS feed URL structure, http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/0000000.rss
- Next you will need to locate the Twitter profile number. This number represents the actual position of when you signed up for Twitter. The lower the number the older the account. To find this number you will need to download the Twitter app on your tablet or phone. Once downloaded you will need to navigate to the individual's account profile. Right under their name and Twitter handle you will see a number (i.e. #17,269,569).
- Replace the 0000000 with this user number (without commas and the # sign).

Twitter recently removed the RSS feed links on all of their account pages. The move is to push the use of their API instead of using RSS, which is more labor intensive to keep up. I for one was disappointed in this move because the RSS feed was much easier to code for versus the Twitter API. But Twitter did not officially kill the RSS feed for Twitter profiles. There is a little hack that will allow you to access any user's RSS feed.
