Twitter notifications on your desktop using Feed Notifier.

No need to download a separate notification app for every service you want to subscribe to!  Use Feed Notifier to get real-time twitter updates on your desktop.

Log into Twitter and you’ll see the RSS icon in the address bar.  Click on it and select the feed you’d like to subscribe to.  Your browser will probably ask you for your Twitter login credentials to view the feed.

Depending on your browser, follow the appropriate steps to copy the feed URL into Feed Notifier.

Because Twitter feeds are authenticated, Feed Notifier will automatically prompt you for your Twitter username and password, as shown below.

After entering your login information, you should be able to add the feed and receive twitter updates on your desktop!

    What is an ideal configuration (options & feeds) for twitter feed notifications? I get an onslaught of popups for tweets going back weeks.

    On another note, here’s a neat tip. What I like to do is use Google reader to create a custom feed ‘bundle’ and subscribe to that via feed notifier. This way I can group feeds into a single feed (say twitter tweets) which feed notifier will accept.

    Here’s a bundle I created: http://goo.gl/U6z5J
