Okay, so I quickly made another Twitter replacement icon for the prehistoric Mac App but this time also the menubar icons with their respective states are included.
You probably already know the deal:
1. To replace the App Icon you need to track down the Twitter.app in your Applications folder, right-click and choose "Show Package Contents" in the context menu.
2. Locate the "Resources" folder in "Contents", duplicate Icon.icns (so you got a backup in the worst case) and replace it with the one I provided in the archive. Sometimes you get prompted to login to make changes. Quit and open Twitter.app again to see said changes.
3. In case you also want to replace the Twitter status icon in your menubar, drill down the same route ("Resources" "Contents"), make backups of "status_alt.png", "status_half.png", "status_off.png" and "status_off.png" and then replace them with the ones I created.
4. Enjoy the rejuvenated Twitter for Mac.
If you want to make your own replacements I'll be happy to help you.

You are a Saint of Saints. I salute you my good man.
This works with Tweetdeck as well just rename Icon.icns to app.icns
Thank YOU, @Dustin Delatore! Makes me smile. :)
This is awesome! Do you have any idea how to change an icon of an app that's been installed from the app store? Mountain Lion won't let me do that :(
@Yavor Punchev Thanks! I got my Twitter for Mac copy also from the App Store and after a login prompt it worked like a charm. What does the dialog box say?
@Benjamin Fritz you're right, it worked! Thanks!
@Yavor Punchev You're welcome :)

I just quickly threw together another Twitter for Mac app replacement icon, inspired by the newest iteration of the Share Icon found in iOS 7 Beta 5: http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/06/ios-7-beta-5-tidbits-icon-settings-redesign-new-control-center-options/
Feel free to download the attachment and replace the original. Instructions are in the description of my first replacement icon.
Disclaimer: It's just approximately rounded corners, no superellipse.
