    I've been using for a couple of users mostly successfully. However it does occasionally return spurious 404s and is down at the moment. However there are alternate instances that can be used (or you can host your own).

    I set up a nitter instance on a loopback address and added a bunch of RSS feeds for certain accounts that I know post a lot of animal photos.

    Twitter doesn't let you view tweets and accounts when you aren't logged in. Nitter is a frontend which lets you bypass that and gets rid of all the spooky tracking stuff. In a link you can replace with,, or and you get a Twitter that's actually browsable without Big Tech spying shit in it.

    I'm currently using frontends like Nitter, Bibliogram and Libreddit to follow social media sites (Twitter, Instagram & Reddit). Nitter has only two ways to "follow" accounts, either through RSS, or by modifying the url and merging multiple accounts into a single feed.
