Replied to a post on github.com :

Looks very much like twitter has changed the URL of the image CDN, but not changed the url extracted by the MF2 parser. Alternatively, it's a bridgy thing, and it's not correctly getting the _true_ url from whatever shim it uses to turn twitter permalinks into MF2 marked up stuff.

In any case, we're attempting to pull the icon and hitting a redirect.

I do think this is primarily a bridgy/twitter interaction issue, but an obvious fix would be to get our code to follow redirects - not sure why it's not already, tbh, but perhaps that's an interaction with our old open_basedir glitch (which iirc @davidmead suffered from).
