Let me subscribe to a Twitter account like just another RSS feed.

It would be awesome if I could tell NewsBlur to subscribe to @BloombergNews or @BBCBreaking so I could see all their tweets in much the same way that I see any other website. There are some Twitter accounts that are really volume, so I don't want to follow them. Likewise, there are some Twitter accounts that tweet once a week, but I don't want to miss those tweets.

Twitter locked up their API behind a ton of crappy restrictions before their IPO. It would be nice to have this but I doubt Samuel would ever want to be under Twitters thumb.

Worse yet, their TOS expressly prohibit clients that mix TWTR content inline with other content, so there would have to be all sorts of weird changes or restrictions on how you can use these feeds. :(
