So, with most of the workday gone since I posted the poll, it's pretty clear that a lot people on my flist want the Twitter digests gone from my LJ. They kinda outnumbered everyone else by about 4:1.
So they're gone.
There were a few people who did seem to get some joy out of the Twitter digests, so, as a compromise, I've set up a Yahoo Piped digest of my posts in twitkirby1024
. If you want to follow my twitter on LJ, you now have to opt-in on this (This is the Yahoo Pipe I've used as the basis of the LJ feed
). I figured this was a reasonable compromise in order to keep everyone happy!
Also, the sheer numbers told me that clearly there's a need yearning to be met here, so I have the following gifts for the Twitter-digest haters:No Loudtwitter Filter
- This is a yahoo pipe that you can plug almost any feed into. It will search for the telltale signs of loudtwitter digests, and then remove said digest from the feed. I currently haven't figured out a way to get it to remove objects from Feedburner feeds (since they get rid of the HTML that this thing sniffs for), so it doesn't work on them, but it should work on most other feeds. You can then plug this feed into your aggregator of choice.No Loudtwitter LJ Friendslist
, this one is for you! All you have to do is enter your LJ username, and this pipe will collate all your friend's LJ entries, and then suck out any loudtwitter digests within, giving you a lovely clean feed of pure LJ entries. You can then plug the feed into your aggregator of choice. The only downside to this is that you won't pick up locked entries. Still, pretty handy nonetheless...
Let it not be said that I don't listen to people!
