Every couple of months I like to share with new people or people on new instances how to add timelines into feeds:

Roll your own: https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].atom

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances.

@cosullivan Sorry i couldn't help commenting on your name: my dad is a cosullivan too: cool name :) (one of Munster's finest )

@cosullivan merci beaucoup for boosing β™₯

it is such a nice way to get to know lovely and inspiring people arround here - thank you!

@cosullivan The upcoming version of Mastodon (2.4.0) will also have https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].rss which doesn't carry all the OStatus metadata that the .atom link has.

My gripe with it is that the title for all posts still is "New status by [userid]", which is terribly unhelpful for consumption in RSS readers.

@hairylarry Thank you most kindly. You didn't know I needed this, u my ego is lower than New Orleans' sea level, but after a careless and costly experience I needed some evidence I had an IQ above room temperature. Thank you for that.


I have been planning out a Free Culture Mastodon instance to eventually live at and having RSS feeds on the curators allows me to have outward facing views into the instance.
