Keep track of Twitter with Mail.app

Twitter_in_Mail If you ever tried to add the RSS feed of your Twitter account to Mail.app in Leopard, you ended up being disappointed because the login just wouldn’t work.

The solution is simple: When you add the RSS feed to Mail, include your username and passwort in the URL, e.g.:
https://username:password@twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline/14658903.rss

Obviously you should choose a unique password for you Twitter account for security reasons.
