Subject Re: Flex news site and rss feed
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2016 18:41:51 GMT
That's how I understand it too. With Twitter you subscribe to accounts that
are usually a person or a business. There are subject based accounts that
post on a specific topic but they are few and far between. And those
accounts content is generated by them manually searching for news and then
posting about it or seeing someone else post and reposting it.

You can create lists that let show the posts of multiple accounts but that
doesn't mean you'll get content about that subject. For example, you can
add an account of a Flash developer but that's no guarantee they will be
posting about Flash.

If Twitter could pull in RSS feeds that would solve part of the problem. If
the ApacheFlex account had a list of RSS feeds it pulled from and then
posted about daily or hourly then it would work. It would still need a way
for users to post their own content or have someone repost it when someone
mentions them.

An alternative would be to setup the news mailing list for user generated
news. Then setup an RSS aggregator for web based news and integrate the
news mailing list in it.
