I am a bachelor student from germany. Currently i am trying to use twitter for prediction task and
I have a few questions:
- I use twitter4j and it seems that there is no possibility to get follower/friend lists of user from the
status object of “onstatus” method. I use the authentication credentials early to build the stream and
can not open another “twitter” object afterwards to get follower / friend lists.
is this correct or is there a way?
(I would have to close the stream, open a twitter object, get infos for userID and then restart the stream, which is very… circumstantial.)
- Is there a possibility to get more than 15 requests / 15 mins for research application?
