I want to direct my website RSS feed to my Twitter account in real time.

As of now, using services like TwitterFeed or HootSuite etc, they have a minimum refresh interval of one hour.

I would like to post my RSS Feed to Twitter as soon as new content is generated on my website rather than waiting for an hour before posting all together.

Would appreciate suggestions on this.

Have you looked at the PubSubHubbub protocol [code.google.com]? That's supposed to update feeds in near real time. I know that TwitterFeed uses it. You may want to run your own hub or use an open hub that has less limitations.

I don't use Feedburner anymore for serving my feeds, but you can 'abuse' Feedburner for publishing to Twitter. Just like roezer said :)

Updates take about 30 minutes, but you can also use the ping feature.
