Get Stackoverflow questions in Twitter

13 Jan

Stackoverflow is a really great site to get questions answered. A lot of developers based on many different technologies use it. As a Silverlight MVP I try to help out with the questions regarding Silverlight.

For some time I have missed a way to easily get an overview of the Silverlight related questions in Stackoverflow – they are typically spread over 5-8 different tags (“Silverlight”, “Silverlight-4.0” and so on). Furthermore I would love to have a way to get the questions in my favorite Twitter reader (MetroTwit).

Luckily there is an easy way to do it:!

I have created an account on twitterfeed and added the RSS feed from each of the tags that I wish to follow from Stackoverflow. To get the feeds into Twitter I have created a Twitter account (@SLWP7QUESTIONS). In twitterfeed I have associated each feed with the twitteraccount.

To avoid my normal twitter account (@thomasmartinsen) from getting flooded with Silverlight questions I have added the new account to a list that contains questions from many different sources.

Now, thanks to, I get Stackoverflow questions in my twitter reader and I get a much easier better overview of the questions asked.
