Callback API when Twitter Follower/Following Updates


I need to simulate a scenario where I have to show the count of twitter followers for every user who has synced Twitter via my app. I couldn’t find any API or npde update which gives a callback when a particular user follower/following count changes.

Right now, I have to trigger a cron for each of the users in my system who has synced the twitter account to get the latest list of follower/following. This is CPU as well as cost intensive.

Do any one has a better solution? Quick response would be appreciated.


You can get follow messages in the user streams API. There’s no REST API for this.
