My friend Mary Canady, who tweets as Comprendia, inspired me to experiment with RSS-to-Twitter tools last month. She offered some invaluable advice at the time, and was kind enough to inquire as to how I’d got along earlier today.
As I’m on something of a Screenr roll at the moment, I thought I’d offer you a visual step-by-step guide to creating RSS-to-Twitter accounts showcasing EvidenceBsdMed, an account designed to serve (you guessed it) the evidence-based medicine community with fresh EBM information from across the web, as it publishes. I dare say there are more elegant ways of achieving the same effect, but this is robust, customizable, and easy to reproduce.
If you decide to have a go at this yourself, do please leave a link to your new creation in the comments field below. If you have any questions, please also feel free to ask them as a comment.
Finally: I notice the folks at RSS2twitter are on a fund-raising drive at the moment. If you like what they do, please consider chipping in a couple of bucks.
