The individual user pages on Twitter contain XFN.
The only catch here is that the only relation represented is 'contact',
and the link is to the user's Twitter page rather than an external site.
However, you could do a two-stage parse: follow the link to the user's
Twitter page, and then look for a link with 'rel="me"' to discover their
website (because links to the user's website are also XFN-marked, using
the 'me' relation).
