Twitter RSS Feed with image xml element (yahoo pipe)

Hi, I want to add a twitter timeline RSS Feed that shows these items: - Title = Name - Link = Link to the twitter status - Description = Tweet message - Media = Account thumbnail The only thing I'm struggling with is including a 'enclosure' or 'media' element on the feed. Could someone help me out? I'm using pipes for this. Is there another way of doing this? Thanks!

Hay Jack, I used Pipes (pipes.yahoo.com) to retrieve the twitter feed and another service to retrieve the twitter avatar (I dont remember what service it was). But last time I used it on an app it was broken and since twitter improved their mobile experience I'm using a regular Web URL to the twitter page instead of RSS. Much easier and the twitter interface looks great now. Anyway, if you want to try I suggest you go to yahoo pipes and search for 'twitter avatar'. Good luck.

You are right, thats the rss for the timeline. The problem is that it doesn't come with an image so I used pipes to mashup the timeline feed with the user image, I just can't remember the name of the service that gets the user image from twitter. Pipes seems difficult at first but they're actually very logical once you play around with it for a while. I haven't used them in a while so I can't give you a walk-through but you should just play with it (look at existing pipes and you will see some of the logic I'm talking about).
