Hi all -- The current update/follower/unfollower limits are not programmatically accessible for a given account in large part because there is little real value. Most use cases which find such information valuable is behavior that we do not feel benefits Twitter as a whole.
Do you have a non-spammy app or app that does not contribute to follower churn where a limits method would help? If so, please share.
