  • Or you want to create your own data feed curate it, get input from other co-workers?
  • Maybe you would like to use your RSS feed into an App designed for Twitter? Why Not?

  2. Import data from an outside data source
  3. Subscribe to an outside data source, so your Data Feed will be automatically updated when there is any change in the data you subscribe to.
