RSS (XML) to Twitter with a photo

Below is a snippet of the XML from an RSS feed. 

I would like to post a Tweet with an image. 

The link to the image is in the enclosed URL tag (replace the & with & to view the image).  

E.g.

https://scontent-ort2-2.cdninstagram.com/v/t51.2885-15/e35/83656913_122453209286778_2085275534449482...

 

I see the option to 'add dynamic content', but need help with making an expression. 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @n1cks ,

 

The best option to extract this data is to use xpath() function to parse the feed and get the URL.

Please check this similar thread and see if it helps:

Besides, you could also use the WDL function to extract the URL, try to use the following expression:

split(split(outputs('Compose'),'<enclosure url="')[1],'" length="0" />')[0]

Hope this helps.

Thanks. Helps a lot. 

 

I'm just missing the 'compose' step.  

 

Is there an expression to pull out the XML?

Edit: 

I got this to work - my flow extracts the image URL from an RSS feed.  But it turns out, the media field in the Post a Tweet action doesn't accept image URL.  Any ideas?
