I love feeds and the people I follow on Twitter.

To make it easier to add the websites of the accounts I follow to @feedly, I wrote a little tool that looks for feeds in your URLs and puts them in an OPML file.

Try it with your followings: Screenshot of the Twitter Followings to OPML website. 1. Login with your Twitter account
2. Keep the tab open until the download starts*
3. Import the OPML-file with your favorite feed reader
4. Enjoy unfiltered content

* It takes a lot of time, because the tool has to visit every website to search for the feed.

There is a new Twitter signup/onboarding process.
What it looked like in 2017:
What it looked like in early 2018:
Auto-locking of accounts:

Per default they want a phone number instead of mail. Instead of a full page signup flow, it is now a modal window.

First screen after entering Name and phone/mail looks like #GDPR. Everything opt-in as the law requires.

Another network of porn spam bots. They get the attention of users by liking and retweeting their Tweets. Pinned Tweet with spam URL. They can be identified through the URLs and phrases they use. All URLs forward to datewith-me1 dot com. @TwitterSupport

/via @element_arb I followed to urls, so you don't have to. After datewith-me you get to sexclub6 dot com and from there to wwa.6 dot dating. This seems to be the final location because after singing up you finally get the option to give the spammers money.
