Twitter turned off their RSS support last month. This page gives several ways to create new RSS feeds for Twitter accounts.
Update (October 27, 2014): Here is a cost-free and ad-free Android app that is an RSS feed generator for Twitter.
Update (April 25, 2015): Here is a list of RSS feeds for each of my Twitter accounts, hosted by BazQux.
Update (February 6, 2017): Subscribing to Twitter via RSS is a losing battle. I’ve deleted the rest of this post because it doesn’t work anymore.

To get a Twitter List as an RSS feed, I jumped through the hoops outlined here to create a Google App that authenticates with Twitter’s API: https://github.com/MitchellMcKenna/twitter-rss-google-apps-script
The links are all showing “503 Over Quota”. Popular! Or glitch?
getting 503 Over Quota error as well, I suspect that rss4twitter has limit on subscribers.
Running my own https://github.com/Astalaseven/twitter-rss server (Python) is working well for me.
I have switched to Bazqux (works great). Does anybody know a way to create a rss feed from a tagged stream?
I wanted to let your readers know about an alternative that I developed called Tweetledee. It is free, MIT licensed and the files are available on GitHub. The documentation with detailed instructions and usage examples are here:
It currently supports user timelines, home timelines, user favorites, search query feeds, and user lists.
There are a number of hosted and self-hosted resources out there now and this is another option for those who are testing/experimenting to determine the optimal approach to address their needs.
Hope it helps. Your readers are welcome to contact me if they have issues or questions about the project.
http://rss4twitter.appspot.com/ is moved to http://www.rssitfor.me
Echoing what bk322 said, rssitfor.me works great.
Thanks for the list!
Does anybody want to try out a new Twitter->RSS service that I’ve created? Visit http://t2rss.org. Still testing it, so registrations are limited. If you decide to give it a try, your feedback will be highly appreciated!
You can easily access all feeds like this http://ta.gd/how-to-get-twitter-rssfeed-2013
Thanks for the info, here you can create your twitter rss feed
i simply don’t understand why everyone stop supporting rss? there is already tools to convert web pages (including twitter timeline) to rss. first search in google gives me twitrss.me , fetchrss.com , and so on. so people need rss. stop killing it
