Twitter Links to RSS feed generator
This script will monitor a search term on twitter and produce an RSS feed of the unique links, using mongodb to save a copy of each link to prevent duplicates. It is designed to be run as an hourly scheduled task on heroku, and produces an RSS feed that is then stored on amazon S3. As there is no
web process running it shouldn't incur any costs on heroku.
You'll need twitter oauth access keys already setup, a heroku account and Amazon S3 access details.
