support JSON feeds, especially now that Twitter has retired its RSS format
want to still be able to subscribe to Twitter feeds without having to create Twitter account
Hello, we now support JSON feeds, for example: https://feedly.com/i/subscription/feed/https://daringfireball.net/feeds/json

Yay! Thank you :)

Not sure which plus I'm at, so I'll just go with +15 on this feature.

+1 for this. Now that JSON Feed is a spec Feedly should support it, maybe even as the preferred over RSS and Atom.
Geoffrey Wiseman commented
Now that JSONFeed is a "real thing" and has support in other readers, I'd like to see it in Feedly.

Jsonfeed is now a thing.
Seems like a good time to revive this request: https://jsonfeed.org/2017/05/17/announcing_json_feed
good to see awesome information

You can convert JSON feed to RSS using Yahoo Pipes - https://pipes.yahoo.com/

Try this for getting RSS feeds from Twitter: https://github.com/MitchellMcKenna/twitter-rss-google-apps-script

Adding my request to the pile. Feedly is already authenticating with Twitter to post articles, so authenticating to fetch an account feed via the 1.1 API shouldn't be too much of a stretch. In particular, I'm looking for my favorites feed, which I used to subscribe to (using Twitter API 1.0 RSS format) specifically so I could tag and keep tweets for future reference within Feedly.
Yes, would be great if feedly could add Twitter JSON recognition for User Timelines and searches!! Would love Feedly even more for this!!

Thx Ross, trying that out now.
If I understand Twitter's new API correctly, all feed requests require authentication now. I suppose they could request the relevant Twitter web page and then parse it to make their own feed... :-P
same here. I would be most grateful for this feature.

The problem is, that there is no particular standard for "feeds" in JSON format. JSON is a format to represent data, which can have any imaginable structure. JSON is the equivalent of XML on which RSS was based on.
In other words, since there is no standard, they would have to implement an interpreter for the JSON structure for each single provider of JSON "feeds".

For anyone interested in being able to do this, I have my Twitter "RSS Feeds" back in action (well, the effect is the same) using the instructions found at http://www.labnol.org/internet/twitter-rss-feeds/27931/. Helps to be a programmer, but anyone who can carefully follow instructions should be able to get this up and running.
This could separate Feedly from all the rest...c'mon you can do this!
