Get an RSS feed for Twitter Searches

I tried to get an RSS feed for a Twitter search earlier today, and found out that they removed the ability to get an RSS or Atom feed from their searches.
Twitter - No RSS

Luckily, I had some saved RSS feeds in my Reader from a long time ago, and found the URL setup:

  1. The URL for the page should look like this (in the example above):
     https://twitter.com/#!/search/ice%20cream 
  2. Replace "https://twitter.com/#!/search/" with the following:
     search.twitter.com/search.atom?q= 
  3. The URL should look like this now:
     http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=ice%20cream 
  4. Copy the URL and transmit that to your favorite reader. Now you have an RSS feed for your search!
See? Simple.
