  3. Copy the link
  4. Visit your Edmodo group and click the “settings” icon located next to the group name, then select the “Subscribe to RSS Feed” link in the drop down menu

    I love the functionality of this, but I’m wondering if this can be done for just certain hashtags.

    I like the feature. However, I find that the tweets push some of my assignment posts down before kids have a chance to see them. Is it possible to have the twitter feed placed in the right column as it is on this blog? I’ve often seen twitter feeds on the right side of websites and it’s useful. Thanks.

    When I copy the link, it says the feed is invalid. I tried to type my Twitter handle with @ and without @. Neither work. What am I doing wrong?

      I am having the same problem. I know I have the right address because it works in other readers so it must be an Edmodo Problem. I will look for a solution or post the problem in the help community.

      This from Edmodo Support – Will Urich – Hi Trent – I just checked with our team and it appears as if Twitter recently has disabled a number of RSS feed functionality, including our site so this one appears to be on their backend.

    Most frustrating. This was a perfect way to have my students engage around class tweets without having their own account as well as stay up to date on the resources we follow to support class investigation.
