Please excuse my ignorance, as I am pretty new to this.

I'm currently creating a xaml C# app using the MVVM approach. I've set up all my objects, models and view models. I am now trying to integrate a live twitter feed off the the following rss feed:, where I have to read the name, image path and tweet text given. I want to read the feed into a .cs object, where it will be added to a list.

Can someone please point me in the correct direction with regard to this, or give me a small working demo to work off?

Thanks a lot
