Post Other Ways to get information
It would be great if you also added:

1) Twitter only for informational purposes - not posting

2) Read it later support - this is a great extension for Firefox

Here is a link if you do not know about it: readitlaterlist.com

Post Re: Other Ways to get information
You can subscribe to anybody's Twitter feed in Awasu:
There's an RSS icon labeled "RSS feed of [twitter_user_ID] tweets" midway down the the right side of the page, right underneath the "Following" list.
Also, you can copy the URL of this link and change the last characters from ".rss" to ".atom" to receive the feed in ATOM format which add some additional data such as the url to the tweeter's picture.


Twitter search feeds:
You can also create one or more twitter search feeds by using this syntax:
(replace "space_delimited_search_terms" with your search terms)
http://search.twitter.com/search.rss?q= ... arch_terms (RSS) or http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q ... arch_terms (ATOM)


You can subscribe to the 20 most recent message's from the Twitter accounts that you are following:
http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.rss (RSS) or http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.atom (ATOM)
(You'll need to enter your Twitter user ID and password for this to work)
You can ask for as many as 250 tweets in a single request by adding a count parameter:
twitter_user_ID:twitter_password http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_tim ... ?count=250 (RSS) or http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_tim ... ?count=250 (ATOM)


Twitter Public Timeline:
You can also subscribe to the twitter public timeline (eveybody's tweets) like this
http://twitter.com/statuses/public_timeline.rss (RSS) or http://twitter.com/statuses/public_timeline.atom (ATOM)


The full Twitter API is here: http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Getting-Started


Read it Later
I'm sure Awasu could work with Read it Later. They have Bookmarklets which are little pieces of JavaScript that send the relevant data to them, but they won't allow me to see the Bookmarklets because I don't have an account with them (that's dumb). :wall: They also have an API but once again I'd have to sign up with them and I'm a little too busy for that right now.

Note: I do not work for Awasu, I'm just a happy Awasu user whose trying to provide some help. I'm sure Awasu could work with Read it Later from a technical standpoint, but I'don't have enough free time to jump through all the hoops that Read it Later has in place.

And as you know, support for JavaScript user tools is coming Real Soon Now... :-)

Yep, the "add" API entry point looks pretty straight-forward.

Glad you mentioned it, so others can get a glimpse into the future.

In addition to the upcoming Bookmarklets support in Awasu, the URL and parameter info could also be used to create a Channel Hook to automatically send feed items to Read it Later from your Awasu Search Channels.

"Can't" isn't in Awasu's vocabulary. :lol:

I never thought of that. Many moons ago, Awasu had a kinda sync'ing with PDA's feature to allow offline reading but you could certainly use your suggestion to get the same result

The Awasu Monster strikes again :whistle:
