I’ve posted in here as I know that it’s possible, but I’m not sure whether it counts as circumventing Twitter’s limitations.
Basically, I’m trying to build an app that goes through a user’s address book (on iOS 5), and fills in display pictures for anyone who has a username set and is in the user’s friends. To get the display picture, the obvious call is
users/profile_image/. However, as that only gets one picture at a time, and is rate-limited (and doesn’t do OAuth, so the limit is 150), it seems like it’d be more efficient to use users/lookup.
profile_image_url, and I know that you can strip the _normal from the end to get the image that’d be returned by
My question - does that count as circumventing the limitation set by Twitter?
