Follow Twitter timelines with Nitter

Since release 2.27.1 the app allows to follow Twitter timelines by using Nitter which is a free and open source alternative Twitter front-end focused on privacy.

The goal of this integration is to allow you to follow several Twitter feeds from different accounts in a same timeline. Twitter servers are never used, and you will never interact directly with these Twitter accounts.

Following these accounts will use the RSS feeds from a Nitter instance that works with pagination.

How to add a timeline

1- First go in Reorder timelines from the main menu.
