Twivatar is a RESTful API to a Twitter user’s built out of frustration of external Twitter apps breaking when the 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.

makes you avoid using Amazon S3 URLs for avatars by abstracting it away. It is simple to use as well, and does not require any registration. Use it like:

<img src="http://twivatar.org/[screen_name]" />

Alternatively you can specify the size image you want from:

  • mini (24×24)
  • normal (48×48 – default)
  • bigger (73×73)
  • original

<img src="http://twivatar.org/[screen_name]/[size]" />

Twivatar is open source and the entire code is available in GitHub.
