I'm writing a Twitter integration and am wondering how I would go about following users with "protected tweets".
Whenever I attempt to follow one of these users (using the http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Twitter-REST-API-Method%3A-friendships%C2%A0create Friendship create method), I get a 403 response (our account is whitelisted, so it's not a rate limiting issue). Also, it doesn't seem that a "follow request" is being sent to these users. I've poured over the API and haven't found any explanation - is there possibly a different API method for requesting a follow for `protected` accounts? Thanks!
