Q.  Can I follow a twitter user with RSS?

A.  Yes, for now.
I prefer following Twitter users via RSS since it show up in my regular
mail program.  It used to have the RSS easily accessible but now
you just have to know.  And this use seems unsupported.  But here is:

http://www.twitter-rss.com/user_timeline.php?screen_name=USERNAME
Old:
http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=USERNAME
I suggest pasting that URL into your browser to make sure it works then you can add it to your fav RSS reader. Who knows how long this will work.
