I'd like to remove my current Twitter avatar and have it revert to one of the default avatars/profile images.

How do I do this?

This is not possible anymore without re-uploading the original Twitter Egg image.

Normal size

Default egg

Reasonably small


From Twitter Support (DM):

Alex, there is no longer an option to delete - you must upload a new photo to replace the old one.
