    I am seeing a lot of good information being shared in tweets. I would like to capture all new tweets once/day and post them in a "tweet" thread.

    Is that easy to do? or has it been done? I did some searching around XF and the internet and either I am not using the correct terms or it doesn't exist, which is surprising to me.

    You can setup a feed:

    Admin CP -> Applications -> Registered Feeds

    But it only posts RSS items as new threads. There is no option to post to an existing thread.

    You can setup a special forum for tweets. The feeder will post new threads in there. Then you can manually merge the threads every day if you want to keep them in one thread.

    The URL to my twitter feed is: http://twitter.com/#search?q=@Teraonline

    When I put that in as a URL for my RSS feed I receive the below error. What can I do to complete the process?

    There was a problem requesting the feed.

    Error message: DOMDocument cannot parse XML: Premature end of data in tag html line 2

    That URL isn't a valid RSS feed.
    You need to check whether Twitter has RSS feeds for accounts/searches.
