I am a pretty avid Twitter user and I use TwitPic to post pictures to my Twitter timeline. Recently I noticed TwitPic was not pulling my profile image from Twitter, which I had always assumed was automatic. Apparently I was wrong. Some may say this is trivial, but hey, I like things to be consistent. So, after an hour or so of screwing around with it, and finally figuring it out, I thought I would share what I found.
First, there is no setting in “Settings” on TwitPic to upload a profile picture. To get TwitPic to pull your profile picture from Twitter, try the following completely unintuitive process:
You may have to do this each time you change your Twitter profile picture.
Don’t ask me why you have to do it this way. It doesn’t make any sense to me either. I would hope TwitPic fixes whatever is broken behind the scenes that is preventing profiles pics from being pulled automatically.
