Why does the Source It Tool not find a Feed when I can see the Icon?

Source It is a bookmarklet: a little app that runs in your browser and lets you grab bits of the web.  Once installed, you can just click it when you are on a web site and capture the RSS feed for the site.  Sometimes though, you get an error that a feed could not be found.  In a few cases, this will happen even though you can see the RSS feed icon on the site or the site has a link to its RSS feed.

I’m Seeing a lot of Old Posts Found by MyCurator

I’ve noticed a lot of old articles keep reappearing in my training posts. Have authors started republishing their posts over and over again? Maybe curators are grabbing them and republishing the whole thing?

It turns out the culprit is twitter. If you are using a twitter search as a feed, you will run into this problem.
