How to hack an RSS feed from a Twitter hashtag

"If you moderate or participate in tweet chats, you know how frantic they can be. In a lively discussion, you can get a constant firehose of tweets pouring at you over the course of the chat, often an hour or so.

Capturing the full flood of Twitter chat is no easy task. There are workarounds (eg, copy tweets and paste periodically into a text editor, or use Storify) yet most if not all are pretty manually intensive.

As a continuing advocate and lover of RSS feeds, it’s great to learn of a simple and easy way to use RSS to automatically capture all tweets in a chat, and in a way that gives you the rich wholeness of a tweet: links to content and to the tweeter’s profile.

Here’s the how-to:"

What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.

 

From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed." 

 

The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 

 

Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10
