Get twitter screen name using twitter id


#1

Is it possible to get twitter screen name through twitter id without
using twitter REST API ?? I actually want to get twitter account profile
image. Using screen name. As we can get profile image through following
url.

https://twitter.com/[screen_name]/profile_image?size=original

I have twitter account id’s in my DB. I wounder is there any way of twitter id to screen name conversion.

twurl "/1.1/users/show.json?id=786491" or, if you have the username twurl "/1.1/users/show.json?screen_name=andypiper"

You need to authenticate to the Twitter API using OAuth, as with all API calls.
