I still have to review this one more in-depth to make sure, but here's a
nasty bit in Twitpic's tos:
"To publish another Twitpic user’s content for any commercial
purpose or for distribution beyond the acceptable Twitter
"retweet" which links back to the original user’s content page
on Twitpic, whether online, in print publication, television, or
any other format, you are required to obtain permission from
Twitpic in advance of said usage and attribute credit to Twitpic
as the source where you have obtained the content. "

Whether this means Twitpic thinks it's acceptable to not mention the
user or the photographer remains to be checked. But if that is the case
(regardless of the fact that not mentioning the author of the photograph
is probably illegal anyway in many countries) I think it is plainly
