It seems Twitter has completely removed the ability to consume their feeds via the open standard of RSS in favor of their more proprietary API formats. At the same time, Facebook seems to have done the same.

Rather depressing. Although it seems twitter has buried the RSS feeds rather than killed them. Lack of RSS and ways to get data out has alway put me off Facebook. I followed Dave Winer’s link: Scripting News: RSS and CSS and Zeldman where he says: If you don’t want that to happen, support technologies that preserve choice. Like RSS.
