  1. Thanks. Having already subscribed to a few of your tip feeds (in Google Reader), I went to add the new RLangTip feed and couldn’t find an RSS button on the Twitter page. Thought I was having a “senior moment”.

    For what it’s worth, Google Reader users can add Twitter feeds by clicking “Browse for stuff > Search > Stay connected to friends and family”, filling in the feed name and selecting Twitter in the combo box. (Does the “friends and family” part mean I need to send @RLangTip holiday cards?)
