Would it be possible to find the account with the most followers you know?


#1

For example, when you look at someone’s Twitter profile, you can see who the people that you follow is following them. (https://twitter.com/[insert twitter handle]/followers_you_follow) So is there a way to make an app that has a leaderboard of sorts that shows what accounts the people that you follow are following?

Yes, in principle this is possible, although you’d have to do that calculation yourself based on the numbers of followers of each account you’re following. The API has the right data and methods to enable this, although it will be difficult for accounts with very high numbers of following/followers due to rate limits.
