Does anyone know if there's a simple way in API v1.1 to get a profile pic link?


#1

I have a site that previously used v1 to get a profile pic link based on a db-stored Twitter username. There is no Twitter auth, or any API use on the site beyond that (just web intents for follow buttons). There were only a handful of requests at a time, so rate-limiting probably wouldn’t be an issue either. With 1.1, I’ve had to introduce a ton more complexity (application secrets, access tokens, base64 encoded strings, oauth, etc.) for such a comparatively trivial request. If there’s no way to get a profile pic link without authentication, is there at least a way to get a profile pic link without getting an entire json user object?
