RSS reader applications allow you to follow your favorite websites without having to visit each one separately."

Twitter API Version 1.1 has been officially released. The API is deprecating support for formats like RSS, XML and Atom. This is likely to cause anguish to developers who have been using RSS as a mechanism to subscribe to Twitter updates and also for cross posting. Apps that use RSS, XML or Atom will need to shift to JSON or other API methods by March 5, 2013. Another important change is that Twitter's 1.1 API now requires authentication via OAuth 1.0a for all endpoints. So if you want to access information, you will have to use OAuth 1.0a. Developers using the Twitter API are advised to visit the official page that gives an overview of the changes coming in version 1.1
