Twitterfeed.comMario, the founder of Twitterfeed has emailed its members including myself that Twitterfeed will be shuttling its doors on October 31st, 2016. He hasn’t given any reason  for the closure of Twitterfeed. He just extends his gratefulness to those who are loyal users and supporters while TF is operating over the years.



The Bitly Inc. owned and operated Twitterfeed[dot]com in 2007. It contains the software that could accommodate any website to publish their RSS feed to twitter and other social services. By registering to its site, the publishers could make their posts, articles, or services shared in the Net its RSS format.

As reviewed by Loren Baker in 2008, SEJ staff, Twitterfeed ranked in the top position based on the query he has made on Google. It could be best use on sharing user’s site posts through RSS feed to be tweeted on Twitter. 10 to 15 minutes, the followers/readers of the blog site received the updates.

Twitterfeed is best used in sharing one’s site content to twitter, Facebook, and other social utilities available on the Net. The user or the publisher is guaranteed that his posts or articles could get a better audience coverage. The publisher could see the real-time statistics to get the proper view of the his site’s performance as to the frequency of traffic received.

Initially its users are oriented that Twitterfeed shares automatically their new posts to the Web. They’ve not thought that Twitterfeed could accommodate old blog posts to spread them all over the Net. Twitterfeed facilitates new posts and old articles to feed to twitter. Others may claim that they can’t do that for their old posts due to the (Globally Unique Identifier) GUID’s limitation.

RSS Format

Posts, articles are automatically made available to the Internet by the Twitterfeed software or facility.  The followers could have the latest post in the form of RSS feeds. RSS stands for RDF site summary. Now it is rich site summary or popularly known as really simple syndication. In so doing, RSS carries those posts converted to the XML file format for compatibility with various applications or programs.

Dan Libby and Ramanathan V. Guha at Netscape created the first version of RDF Site Summary. My[dot]Netscape[dot]com portal used that. Improving it, Libby renamed it as Rich Site Summary. RSS took several changes. In 2004, Stephen Horlander created the RSS icon for Mozilla Firefox browser.

As of this writing, I am using RSS to share my post to my readers. I am not aware anymore if my Twitterfeed account is accessible for I have been inactive for several years. Anyway, we jus say thank you to Twitterfeed for the service it has extended us in sharing our blog site’s contents to the Net. We may find another feeder program or software for our contents for easy dissemination to our readers, followers.

Thank you!

        Well, I don’t know that. Twitterfeed is independent from Twitter. It works as a blog content sharing to Twitter. I don’t know what is the reason behind the closure of Twitterfeed. The founder himself didn’t declare it.
