I’m sad

I want to put my own words in the description for the RSS feed article.

Is it possible to change the text in a Tweet when posting from an RSS feed?

    I believe this is no longer available because of a view some might think odd that twitter.com have taken regarding potential misleading of users with regard to the veracity of a supposed reputable rss link actually referencing a less desirable address. Given that anyone can type anything into a tweet, I find this position very odd.

    The explanatory link that is provided with the edit function suggests that there was a bigger concern around the scheduling of tweets giving updates of rss feed items, but there does not appear to be a conclusion on this matter.

    I do find the inability to add comment to a feed item very restrictive. Any chance of this being looked at again? Perhaps some compromise is available.

    I am tempted to have a simple account to post unedited feed items, and then use pluggio to retweet those posts with comments. Feels clumsy, and probably breaks a twitter.com ToS rule somewhere.

    Oops - I have belatedly realised that I can in fact edit everything except the link! I assume the character count is adjusted accordingly to account for the part that can not be edited.

    The explanatory text is not obvious enough for the likes of me (which may be an over-thinking issue).
