#tag feed from twitter
Hi! I have successfully linked my twitter feed into my blog. Is it possible for the feed to be driven by #tags? ie. rather than a feed from my twitter account my blog show all tweets that have a particular #tag within them from any account?
The blog I need help with is 22michaelb.wordpress.com.
Only if you can find the RSS feed for that. I don’t believe search has that capacity right now, certainly not JUST certain tags from JUST certain accounts.
Thanks raincoaster. I run events and want to use the hash tags that I use for them to post on the blog. ie. #olympics2012 Im happy for any tweet from any account to appear in the feed as long as it has the appropriate hash tag included. I have seen self hosted sites do this but I wonder if there is a way for me to do so?
If you can find a feed for it on Twitter, you can put it in the RSS feed widget.
I usually recommend CoverItLive for that. You can see it on a WP.com blog under the “This Week’s Chat” tab on this blog http://bcwinechat.com and instructions are here:
Thanks again. You are a great help- and the wine sounds fantastic!
I have seen what I want on this hobby site http://www.rollwithit.org.uk – see the side bar – where tweets are posted based on their #tag, in this particular case #caleuprising.
I’d like to replicate exactly this but need some help.
The site you point to is not a free hosted WordPress.com blog like yours. It’;s a self hosted WordPress.org install.

Finding a tag feed in Twitter is a Twitter issue, not a WordPress issue. If you can find a feed, you can put it in an RSS widget. That’s all the help we can offer.

Thanks for posting that. I just lol at my answer in the other thread. :D
But technically, you were correct!
Indeed I was.
That does just what I want it to!
Very many thanks airodyssey for pointing me in the right direction.
Fantastic service from the community here!
You’re welcome. We appreciate your saying so.
I have been really impressed.
One final question. Do you know how often RSS feeds are updated? the feed shows all my updates from 24 hours ago but I hope it updates more often than once per day. Does anyone know?
For some sites, they’re updated whenever a new reader comes along. That’s the case at Wp.com.
Doesn’t seem to be working like that though. I have tweeted myself and so has a friend – both tweets have been published but neither have been picked up by the RSS feed. That’s why I asked about the refresh rate.
LOL Why can’t life be easy?
I think you’re going to have to ask over at twitter.com.
Many thanks anyway. You’ve been great
