How To Subscribe To a Twitter Feed via RSS

It's almost impossible anymore to subscribe to an RSS feed of someone's Twitter feed. This is because Twitter wants you to go through their viewer. But, like me, you may want to have tweets come up in your RSS reader such as Google Reader.

How to subscribe to a Twitter feed in RSS:
2. Change the URL, replacing INSERTNAME with the twitter user name for that user
3. In the string of garbled info, look near the bottom for "ID:" followed by a number of approximately 8 digits. Call this number ABCDEFGH
4. The RSS feed you want to subscribe to is: http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/ABCDEFGH.rss

Good luck finding this anywhere else on the web.
