Twitter Avatar API

This is is a RESTful API to a Twitter user's avatar built out of frustration of external Twitter apps breaking when the avatar url is stored, and then changed by that user later on Twitter - the result is a broken image on that app unless they constantly check for profile changes.


Rate Limiting

There is no limitation at this moment, so please use it fairly.


<img src="[screen_name]" />

Also, you can use HTTPS:

<img src="[screen_name]" />

And you can specify the size image you want from:

mini (24x24)
normal (48x48 - default)
bigger (73x73)

So the request would be like this:

<img src="[screen_name]/[size]" />
<img src="[screen_name]/[size]" />



<img src="" />


<img src="" />
