    Hi mhawksey,

    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.

    regards,

    Hi – it breaks down as friends = following and followers = followers 🙂

    Hi Martin,

    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.

    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?

    Hi,

    The different is up to 50% in some cases.

    are you able to spot any trends? For example is it worse for accounts with more followers/following?

    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.

    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?

    Best regards.

    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/
