I'm sorry if this is wrong place to ask.
To get user's avatar we still must consume RESTFUL Api?
We can't make it with streaming api which isn't rate limited?

So how do you manage it in "http://twivatar.herokuapp.com/"
Don't you consume API rates.?
AFAIK there is no whitelisted application.
Thank you.

Just point the avatar to:
http://twitter.com/api/users/profile_image/<screen_name>

ie.

I suppose "http://twitter.com/api/users/profile_image/<screen_name>" is also rate limited?

Regarding to link

But your app (http://twivatar.herokuapp.com/[screen_name) is not rate limited, or..

Per user - so it's client side, but possibly - check their
documentation. I suspect it's around 2000 per hour, but it could be
more.

I was thinking that rate limit is per application but it is per user.
Where 350 request/hour is reasonable, so that's ok.

Thank you again.
