Following twitter without twitter (using rss)

Having no twitter account myself (yet?), but still wanting to follow some of my friend’s and colleague’s tweets, I always subscribed to the matching RSS feeds from MS Outlook.

Since a twitter update somewhere last year, it has gotten a lot harder to get the right url for the feed, since it is no longer displayed directly on the page.

Today, I found this post describing as much as three different methods of acquiring a working url to a user’s twitter stream as an rss feed. Works great!
