Getting Twitter Profile Image URLs

Tweet from yesterday:

Super useful (don’t know why Twitter hasn’t done this themselves)– Static Profile Image Urls from Shannon Whitley: http://t.co/AjhvqwL #

I take it back– I still love Shannon Whitley’s SPIURL, but apparently, Twitter does have a static link for profile images. Almost all of the Google search results yesterday lamented that Twitter didn’t already have a profile image URL convention and I still haven’t found the actual API documentation page (just some twitter-dev talk), but the URL format is:

http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/username

See, my profile image is at http://api.twitter.com/1/users/profile_image/sindyjlee/:
