    I'm not sure if any bot would have this feature built into it.

    But you can definitely scrape the list of followers of any account with pretty much any Twitter tool e.g. Followliker, then you can use this iMacros script i made to scrape the profile pics:
    HTML:
    TAB T=1
    TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS
    SET !ERRORIGNORE NO
    SET !DATASOURCE c:\followers.csv
    SET !LOOP 1
    SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
    URL GOTO=https://twitter.com/{{!COL1}}
    ONDOWNLOAD FOLDER=c:\profile_pics\ FILE={{!COL1}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=IMG ATTR=SRC:https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/*.jpg CONTENT=EVENT:SAVEITEM
    Create a followers.csv file with the usernames, one per line and put it into the root of your c: drive. If you play the macro in loop, it will go through the whole list one by one, the file names will be the usernames, loop count=the number of usernames on your list. It's feasible unless it's millions of usernames.

    i get with chrome " RuntimeError: !DATASOURCE requires File IO interface, line: 4 "

    question "loop count=the number of usernames on your list." i.e. → SET !LOOP 2
    if 2 in the csv?

    Try with firefox and no you don't have to change any command on the script.
    Just use the "Play (loop)" button on the imacros and set the "max" textbox value to ur total username counts.
    Sometime windows create permission problem so change "Datasource" file path to another drive. Ex: "SET !DATASOURCE D:\followers.csv"
    And also change that "ONDOWNLOAD FOLDER" path to another drive except C:\

    Well, i don't know about Chrome. I think that one is the most unstable, featureless when it comes to running iMacros. Try the standalone iMacros browser or the Firefox addon, i made this script with the standalone version, it might not work with different versions of iMacros.

    Maybe it wasn't clear enough, but what i meant when i said "loop count=the number of usernames on your list", is the number what you enter into the "Max" box, before you hit "Play (Loop)". In this case it's the number of profile pics you want to scrape, which is also the number of usernames you have in your .csv.

    If you modify that line in the code to SET !LOOP 2, the macro will start from the 2nd entry on your list and won't scrape the first one, which is good to know and can be useful, if you need to stop the scraping for any reason and you would continue where you abandoned the task and not start the whole thing from scratch. :)

    And i need to reply to myself :), because i wasn't right. The paid version of Twitter Money Bot has a built-in avatar scraper, it's capable of scraping avatars of a list of users. It's funny how i forgot about this, i beta tested the tool myself and i still have my license, it's just that i don't use it too frequently anymore. The avatar scraper is in there nevertheless.
