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

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.

Thanks in advance,
