I've made a webpage of 87x "Best RapidMiner Videos", above.  After a few *hours* of googling I could find no quickstart, tutorial or examples for using "Read RSS Feed"....  I want to process web feeds, primarily Twitter feeds.  I could also find no quickstart, tutorial or examples for using RapidMiner with Twitter.  The main thing I want to be able to do is filter tweets on non-identical similarity, presumably via classification.  I would also like to try using RapidMiner for link metrics.  I have searched this forum for "rss" and "twitter", without finding anything helpful to me.  Also, it is not clear to me how to access RapidMiner results programmatically like an API.  It seems that it would be much more accessible if RapidMiner were available in the cloud as a web service.  Ultimately, I hope to be able to use RapidMiner in conjunction with Yahoo! Pipes.  (And, I could find no quickstart, tutorial or examples for using RapidMiner with Yahoo! Pipes....)

    I Googled "rapidminer Read RSS Feed" and got http://www.myexperiment.org/workflows/1465.html as the first link. It says, "This workflow connects RapidMiner to Twitter and downloads the timeline". Are we using the same Google?

    I also got that, but could not get it to work....  There seems to be some kind of inconsistency or incompatibility between the "Read RSS Feed" and the "Process Documents from Data".  Can you reproduce it in a working version?  Can you post the steps you took to get it working?

    I am having the same issue.  Has this been resolved?

    This is the example that haddock cited -
    I just added my Twitter feed url and my
    user agent to "Read RSS Feed" and it works
    fine. (Rapid Miner 5.3.000):
