You can follow the primary OATP Twitter feed at @oatp.

  • It's the most popular of the many formats of the primary OATP feed.

Note that the Twitter feed is abridged.

  • It's abridged against our will. It's abridged because the native OATP output is in RSS, and all the RSS-to-Twitter tools we've been able to find truncate the feed.
  • Currently, we use IFTTT, which limits the feed to 25 tweets per day. That's a higher cap than any other tool we've found, but we'd still like to remove the cap.
  • On most days, we tag fewer than 25 items, and the Twitter feed is complete. But on heavy days we exceed 25, and the Twitter feed is incomplete.
  • This is annoying. But it helps to remember that it's a side effect of success (success in covering OA comprehensively).

We welcome your help in identifying or creating an RSS-to-Twitter tool that does not abridge the Twitter feed.

Meantime consider one of the unabridged versions of the primary OATP feed.
