About Twitter Feeds

Twitter Feeds

Twitter Feeds allows you to generate self-updating content feeds with original tweets related to a specific keyword or from a specific Twitter user.



To use Twitter Feeds generator you need to sign up for any of the RSS Ground membership plans. Depending on your membership level you will have different access to the tool's options:

  • Free Basic users will be able to use only keywords to generate self-updating Twitter feeds.
  • Plus users will be able to generate Twitter feeds using keywords and Twitter user names. But they won't be able to use advanced content filters.
  • Premium and Business users will be able to use the Twitter Feeds generator to the fullest with no limits.
Twitter feeds are private content feeds. The number of active private feeds is limited by your RSS Ground membership plan.


Example of a Twitter feed:



Each Twitter feed will contain up to 100 unique tweets.

Note: only tweets that are not older than 7 days will be shown in Twitter feeds.

A tweet will include text and media (image or video) if available.

Note: only native media added manually can be shown with tweets. Media pulled by Twitter through links will not be visible.


If you already have an RSS Ground account, you need to go to FEEDS - Generate private feeds, and click on Twitter Feeds icon:
