Twitter friends again!

Update 12/2009: Mentions and retweets are excluded from the friends_timeline.rss.  Nowadays, it's better to join the mentions.rss feed with the home_timeline.rss.

Remember how angry I was at twitter? They turned off open friends feeds subscription since the WWDC?

It turns out the solution I needed was a one-liner cron job.

curl -u email:password http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.rss > twitter_friends.rss

::slaps head::

Now I can use Google Reader again.  Thanks, Twitter API.  We can be friends again.
