The problem with RSS is that it's not the *point*. RSS is the enabling technology for tweeting our links, it shouldn't be something we have to interact with directly to receive information. It's the same thing with HTML... can you imagine if we had to scan through HTML in order to read sites? Or if we had to have a tool between us and the browser just to read the browser?
Why should we have to have that middle layer of RSS subscription vehicles if we can get it via Twitter? Why indeed.
