UPDATE: TweetSavr v1 is currently broken. Which is due to Twitter updating how you can use your RSS feeds (feeds are now password protected).

TweetSavr is my second Mac OS X screensaver that connects to your Twitter account to display your latest tweets, your friends, or even public tweets. TweetSavr allows you to keep up-to date with Twitter without having to be sitting in front of your Mac.

System Requirements:

PowerPC or Intel Macintosh, Mac OS X Leopard 10.5+, and Quartz Extreme

Download Now (#1 Mirror)

Instructions:

To install TweetSavr open the DMG and drag “TweetSavr” to the “Screensavers” folder.

To use TweetSavr open “System Preferences” and select “Desktop & Screen saver.” TweetSavr should show up on the bottom of the list in the “Other” section.

Personal Timeline: Grab the Twitter RSS URL from the bottom of your Twitter profile. It Should look something like; (feed://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/6075622.rss).

Personal Timeline with Friends: Grab the Twitter RSS URL from the bottom of your Twitter home. It Should look something like; (feed://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline/6075622.rss).

Public Timeline: Grab this Twitter URL; (feed://twitter.com/statuses/public_timeline.rss).

  1. Hi,

    I loaded this onto my macbook pro. In the options window, it won’t let me enter my info. It keeps defaulting to your entry. Is there an API or twitter settings issue that I need to know about?

    Thanks.

  2. Twitter updated their RSS feed(s), now you have to supply a password to use “http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.rss.” Which, unfortunately, broke TweetSavr v1.0. If I have some free-time in the near future. I’ll try and update it.
