RSS feeds from App.net by tag

You can pull an RSS feed from the App.net Alpha API using this format

https://alpha-api.app.net/feed/rss/posts/tag/term

For example, if you wanted to pull everything tagged with “#winning” you could use this feed address in an RSS embed

Plug that into a feed display or something like the cool HungryFEED for WordPress and you get something like this to get the last five mentions of #winning

[hungryfeed url=”https://alpha-api.app.net/feed/rss/posts/tag/winning” max_items=”5″]

Here is what it looks like in WordPress. I like to put a little table around it and my WordPress theme is kinda funky, so I percentage-width it as well.
