I've asked about this before - so apologies if anyone is re-reading this... I'm needing to get the profile_image_urls of all the @user_mentions in a timeline. Right now, it looks like the only way I can do this without killing rate limit in about an hour (which I just did) is to send a comma separated-list to users/lookup. However - this is adding major complications to my app structure, and I'd much rather avoid it. I can store the returned urls in a local DB, but if enough people use the app within an hour, it'll still quickly exceed the rate limit.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get this done? Even better - anyone at Twitter think that the API could return the profile_image_url with the current @user_mention data.. seems it would be useful for many.
