Does anyone knows how I get a friendships followers_count of the same day one week before with the Twitter API?

Hey Guys,

I need a friendships followers_count of the day one week before for a presentation in klipfolio to see the differences between the past and now.

I tried it with since & until:

https://api.twitter.com/1.1/users/show.json?screen_name=Sky_Uli&since:2014-05-19&until:2014-05-26

But it didn’t worked… It shows the same result like without a daterange.

The since and until parameters are not valid on the [node:10320] endpoint. In order to do what you want, you’d need to have queried the follower count a week before, and then stored that information to show the difference. You cannot get that kind of historical data from the Twitter API (although other services like Twittercounter, not associated with Twitter, may be tracking that data for the user ID you want to look at).
