New update on this:
I have noticed that Twitter is remembering my old display pictures.
Also whenever I am using my application to update a new DP
via API, I loose my picture. Then if I go back to the web interface and
click on the image deletion link on the profile page, one of my older
DP turns up like a resurrection! What is the queue size of old DPs
kept by Twitter?
Is updating a new picture not equivalent to deleting the old and
putting a new one? Earlier, older avatar links used to return an
error when a new one was uploaded via API.
