I need help finding a program to do what I want to do.
I want a program that just sits in my system tray and pops up an alert whenever a specific Twitter account uses one of a list of specific words. Basically, exactly Feed Notifier
, except reading Twitter instead of RSS. I used to use Feed Notifier for exactly this, but then Twitter shut down their RSS service so I'm helpless.
So set up a layer of indirection. Cheat and use a page to rss service like feed43
, or numerous others...
API v1.1 will support JSON only. ... dropping XML support on the Streaming API and more recently on the trends API. ... Consequently, we've decided to discontinue support for XML, Atom, and RSS, which are infrequently used today.
Scrape those greedy fuckers until they bleed.
If those RSS tools refresh too slowly for you, then you may need to host something of your own. Just look for "Twitter JSON to RSS" and you'll start finding alternatives.

Because you still don't know the difference between Twitter and tumblr.
