I am having problems getting the followers of multiple users. The IDs of some followers (those with longer ID code) is not accurate. See for example:
When I use GET followers/ids, the first 6 IDs I get are:
However, when I use lookup user for each of these user IDs, I can not find the codes:
However, I know the screen name of these 3 followers by simply looking my Twitter account on a browser. When I look these users by screen name I get the correct code which are:
You can see that the codes returned by GET followers/ids and the codes obtained from lookup user are very similar, they only differ in the last digit. I think the problem is with GET followers/ids which for some reason is returning inaccurate codes for followers, and this problem only happens with ID codes with 18 characters (I think this are newer users).
Anyone had this problem before?
