Comment (by iandunn):

 Oh, I forgot to mention, profiles.wordpress.org doesn't collect Twitter
 usernames, it just pulls them from Gravatar's API, so that's why we'll
 need a remote request.

 The other sticking point is that the URL stored in the WordPress.org
 account is the value from the wordpress.org/support profile, not the
 profiles.wordpress.org profile. Ideally we want to use the
 profiles.wordpress.org value, since wordpress.org/support profiles will be
 going away eventually (see #518).

 Profiles.WordPress.org doesn't have an API to pull user data. WordCamp.org
 could query the Profiles database to get the info, but that wouldn't work
 on sandboxes, so I tempted to just say let's use the WordPress.org account
 value, and it'll eventually be synced w/ Profiles once the support
 profiles are decommissioned.
