Thank you for developing the application to export twitter friends and followers. I am using it for my project assignment. I am a bit confuse about followers and friends in twitter. How you differentiate it. Thanks.

Hi – it breaks down as friends = following and followers = followers 🙂January 14, 2017 at 12:09 am #859
Thank you for the explanation.
One more question, the data downloaded is not same with the no. of followers display in twitter page. Example, total no of followers = 500. The tool only downloaded 450. Could you please advice. Thanks.January 16, 2017 at 9:29 am #863
Hi – last time I looked there was a comment on one of Twitters community sites where Twitter admitted the numbers didn’t match. Twitter are always tweaking their service so this may have changed. Is there a big difference in the number?January 16, 2017 at 11:23 am #864
The different is up to 50% in some cases.January 16, 2017 at 8:36 pm #866
are you able to spot any trends? For example is it worse for accounts with more followers/following?January 16, 2017 at 9:23 pm #868
It is fluctuating. Difficult to spot the trends. For the account with more followers (>5000), I will repeat the process until the message ‘no new users’ is display.February 19, 2017 at 7:31 am #913
When I export followers from another account, the order of the list is the arrival of the followers?
Is it possible to know the date of arrival of the follower?

Hi – yes the list is ordered by date but my recollection is the connected date is not included in the data from the Twitter API. For new followers you can run the script regularly and record a connection date separately or using estimation techniques like this one https://blog.ouseful.info/2013/04/05/estimated-follower-accession-charts-for-twitter/February 20, 2017 at 10:45 am #918
Ok. Gracias 😉
