Follower count through API vs Insights

analytics

#1

Hi,
I have a set of handles for which I get the followers data by making a call to rest api v1.1/users/lookup.I run this program each day so that I can show historical data in my app.

Twitter also provides something similar to this in its analytics.twitter.com under followers tab.

The issue is that these two data, the data got through api and that presented in analytics.twitter.com are not matching. I run my program at the end of the day each day around 9PM EST. May I know how you guys collect data for the follower stats provided at analytics.twitter.com.

The idea here is to know how I can minimize the difference between the data that I get through API call and the data provided by Twitter Insights.
