The not so easy approach is having to create a Twitter account for your blog feed using rss2feed or twitterfeed and then promote this on your blog sidebar, perhaps with a subscription form, I’d like to see this.
But what this post is really about is the other way around, how can I splice my Twitter feed into Feedburner?
Some will hate this, as all they want is to see the RSS version of blog posts, that’s why the subscribed to the feed, they don’t want to see flickr photo’s, bookmarks, and possibly Twitter updates, leave the lifestream to iStalkr and others.
Splice in my Twitter account.
Splice in a new Twitter account that is used for blog announcements and updates.
This last one is what I’m after, I’ve suggested it in the past, see my post What do you get when you cross Feedburner with publi.sh?.
NOTE: a blogger could also promote just the Loopnote feed on their blog which would be just the announcement spliced feed part of the Feedburner feed, this allows subscribers to get just the announcement content part of the feed by SMS and the rest.
Anyway what I was after and still am is an announcement feed spliced into my Feedburner feed, and the obvious choice seems like Twitter, even though Loopnote would be just as good as you can post by SMS, IM or email, Twitter just seems the obvious choice.
Just to be clear, just like my spliced in del.icio.us links, my blog annoucements from my potential spliced in Twitter feed would not appear in my HTML blog content, only in the RSS content version of my blog.
But I would want my announcements to be published in the feed as it happens, not once daily, as announcements are more likely to be time pertinent.
What do you think?
