Well if you want to embed the complete tweet containing the image you can use the twitter embed tool:

However if you are trying to grab just the image then that has been ruled illegal in a case involving the Washington Post:

As the practice has been ruled illegal, it would be a violation of EE rules regarding illegal activities and infringement of intellectual property so we would not be able to help you with that.
