Inspired by #662, but I think this is a self-contained separate task.

We already retrieve profile images for users who link to their Facebook (or Google+, now defunct) accounts, storing the URL in our database.

Twitter also allows us to retrieve the profile picture URL (among other things) via their GET users/show endpoint: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/accounts-and-users/follow-search-get-users/api-reference/get-users-show.

We should implement this so we can also display Twitter profile pictures where appropriate.
