> So what's the right way to get user profile image?

One option is to throw yourself at the mercy of someone tracking and
caching those images. We've used Shannon Whitley
(@swhitley) SPIURL as a backup source on other projects like http://tweet08.com

You basically code http://purl.org/net/spiurl/{screen_name} and it
"just redirects".  They're running on free-level service for Google
AppEngine, so it might not always be up, but hey, it's free.
