What is the best way to stream events (but not tweets) for a user?


I’d like to track changes to a user’s followers, the best way that I can think of using the current API is to use a user stream with track=something_unlikey_to_match as a parameter.

Note that I’m just interested in new follows at the moment, so the lack of unfollow events doesn’t bother me.

Is there a better way to do this?


I can’t think of a better way to do this.
