If you still care to know...

Go to the Twitpic URL in question.
Right-click the image and hit "View Image" or whatever your browser's analogous option is. This should load the image by iteself in a browser window.
Copy the resulting URL from the address bar.
Paste here in between the [img] tags.

there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

actually, ive noticed that it seems like the url's for twitpics images change or something, because i have failed at hotlinking them several times.  theyll be there for a few loads and then they disappear.  the best thing to do is just post the link to the photo on twitpic.

You're right. Recent photos seems to be hosted on a Twitpic server and then are moved to a storage service run by Amazon.

best bet is to save it to an image hosting sight like photobucket, then link it from there.

Thanks for the explanation y'all.  I feel better knowing that my failure at this had more to do with an actual technical issue and not my own idiocy.

(for once).
