I’m new to this so please bear with me.
My app needs to go and retrieve the list of all followers of mine. I know followers/ids does that but I’m confused on the rate limiting. Some users have over 1 million followers and if I repeatedly call followers/ids changing the cursor each time then after 15 calls it stops (as I’ve hit the limit). How do I go about getting ALL the followers and avoiding being rate limited?
Secondly, users/search.json … Is there a way I can determine if a user in the search results follows me? On the web interface it says ‘follows you’ so it must be there but I can’t find it. How do I get it?
