Using Twitter as RSS feed

Sometimes, you can just avoid installing another iOS app!

About one and half year ago, I’ve stopped using RSS feeds and switched to Twitter.

Today the majority of blogs (like this) provide a Twitter account which, basically, posts the articles link as soon as they published. Unfortunately, some just didn’t.

But, our friend IFTTT provide different possibilities for using other services as RSS client.

Personally I’ve choosed to build a recipe which send to me a Twitter DM for every feed update, with the article title and a link to the article itself.

This will also provide an handy way to know how many articles you’ve to read, using the Twitter app badge.

I’m going to try this for few days and see whats happen.
