Creating Twitter Feeds in MindManager Map Parts

Twitter RSS feeds no longer work after they changed their API in March 2013.

However the principles outlined above do work for web sites that have RSS feeds.

I decided to have a go at using the Map Parts – News Feed for adding Tweets to a map this afternoon. I had heard that people were not succeeding in making this work. I have it working for individuals, searches, hash tags and lists. Follow the process below.

This is a clickable map. The Twitter icons will click through to Twitter and the Central Topic downloads the MindManager map. You will be able to see the most recent Tweets from all these sources.

Copy a Twitter RSS feed from the icon on Twitter and Twitter Search pages. You will not find it on Twitter list pages. See the last topic on the map.
