[beginner] app architecture and queries


I’m not super familiar with twitter API, but I want to build an iOS app where users:

  • Will be able to create some content stored on a server.
  • Will be able to see the content created by the people they follow on twitter.

So creating a view where you would see the content from people you follow would require to:

  • Use twitter’s API to get a list of followers
  • Make a query using that list against the users that have created content.

So if a user follows thousands of people, I have a feeling this won’t be very healthy. How would you design the app to get decent performance?
Is there a way to directly query the followers who have created some content?

Many thanks!
