So a user comes to the site and I need to build their social graph. I have two options.
1) Use followers/ids and get ids of all their followers 5,000 at a time 2) Use statuses/followers and get profiles of all followers 100 at a time Ids alone don't really do me much good. So option 2 is more efficient for me (unless there's a batch user fetch api I'm unaware of). That being said, if a user has 10,000 followers (not uncommon) then I have to make 100 API calls to fetch profiles for all the followers. Not a big deal. Except, Twitter gives me random errors. Sometimes it's a 502 and other times a 400. I'm not confident that I won't randomly receive a different 4xx or 5xx response. I tried to put code in place so that on 5xx responses that I would *continue* and retry the request. That's when I got a 400 response. I have yet to fetch someone's entire graph using a sample account with 13,000 followers. Has anyone successfully migrated to cursors and consistently pulled down a large (>10k) graph?
