Well, the API returns (in my case) http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1079883403/_MG_0016_normal.jpg. Replacing "_normal.jpg" with "_reasonably_small.jpg" (so that it becomes http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1079883403/_MG_0016_reasonably_small.jpg) seems to work.

I know that. Thats not what I am asking for. I am wondering how
Twitpic is able to get 128x128 when we can only get 73x73 as the
largest thumbnail.

For example. Image I originally uploaded is stored at this url.
http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/290187007/n500024856_39228_3390.jpg

Twitpic uses:
http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/290187007/n500024856_39228_3390_reasonably_small.jpg

Actually, /1/users/profile_image/tvdw returned my 500x500 image.. All I
did was upload it at twitter.com like any other user would.

There is no indication of this in the API anywhere

How do apps like Twitpic and WeFollow use larger sized profile
images??

The Twitter API's largest profile image is 73x73 (http://
