Hi all,

A while back, I proposed an aggregated feed of all the UWebD folks on Twitter. This turned out, unsurprisingly, to be harder than I thought. Not being a programmer, I first tried using feed.informer but it didn't update often enough to work for Twitter.

Next, I tried Yahoo Pipes... but not being a programmer I can't quite wrap my head around what the various modules do and how to make them work together to do what I want. So I have created a very basic pipe that takes a bunch of twitter feeds (I took the liberty of adding all publicly available feeds available on the "Do You Twitter?" discussion here on the Ning group) and sorts them in reverse chrono order.

The rest, my friends, depends on the wisdom of the UWebD crowd.

I'm hoping someone else with more of a knack or more pipes experience can pick up from here and add some functionality to make it more useful (such as displaying the "(time) ago" that tweets generally do, keeping the title and the description from both showing up, etc.)

I've also reserved a uwebd Twitter username, in case we eventually want to feed this back into Twitter...

Thanks, and happy tweeting!

Aaron,
This is really cool. If you have the UwebD name reserved there is no reason you can't push the Latest Activity RSS feed to the twitter account through TweetFeed?

Pulling all those peoples tweets into it is probably overkill especially if most people are already following them all anyway.

Just a thought.
That makes sense -- I hadn't thought about adding the Latest Activity feed. Let's try it and see what happens! :-)

Aaron -

Thanks for working on this. I was thinking of pulling in the Twitter activity of uwebd members onto the home page of the Ning site. Your thoughts?

Mark
Yes, I had hoped that would happen... but I thing the pipe itself could stand to be cleaned up in the ways I mentioned above beforehand, maybe?
Yes, let's see if we can leverage the wisdom of the uwebd crowd to clean it up beforehand. Let me know when you think it's ready for prime time.
Hi All - Anyone willing to help us out with this. Given the growing popularity of Twitter with our members, this would be a great feature to add to this site.
If you pull the feed into a Ning page using the RSS feature you can tell it to post headlines only (so you'll just see the Tweets once). I'm going that on another network and it seems to be working pretty well.
