      Description

      Trying to add a Twitter RSS feed using the News tool in Sakai, an error message appeared:

      “Alert: This news service is not available at the moment. Please check back later: : [Unable to obtain news feed from https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=oxfordweblearn]

      It seems that Sakai does not like the https certificate provided by Twitter. The error message could be more helpful.
