API Limitations. Possible to see followers of followers via API?


I’m in the process of learning APIs with a programming language I’ve never used – so the documentation can be tricky for me. I am investigating the feasibility of a small project I have envisioned. I want to download a list of a twitter user’s followers and a list of the followers of each follower (hope that makes sense) I can see this information with my browser, so I assume it is possible via API, but do the limitations of the API calls make this difficult?
