"rss" seems too specific. It is just one of the supported feed formats
("atom" is the other one). "ticker" also seems too specific. The ticker
is just one way to present news.

According to wikipedia newsticker would be called a "feed reader" or
"feed aggregator" which for example could be abbreviated as
"fag"... Probably not the best idea.

I think I like "nt". I don't mind if it sounds like an operating system
or whatever. It is a good abbreviation for "newsticker". And
"newsticker" is not the worst name for a feed aggregator.
