App To Compare Followers and Following To Find Mismatches


I think the title says enough about what I’m trying to do, so I’ll get to the question.

Basically, I’ve used the developer console ( to retrieve a list of IDs for both Followers and Following. After this, I am lost as to what to do. Basically the get commands returned user IDs rather than screen names, so I have no idea which users are which.

My plan of action as of right now, is to just compare the IDs with nested for loops and return (only for Following) the IDs that don’t match; however, I don’t to use some website that says “Enter user ID” and it spits out the actual username.

So, what is the best method of finding the usernames of multiple user IDs at a time.
(NOTE: If it matters, the amount of IDs will be small, as in <30 as I am simply using this for my account to begin with)

I am sorry if there is a thread on this, I couldn’t find one. If there is one and you’d like to link me to it rather than explain what I should do, that will suffice.

Thank you!
