I understand the twitter API has a rate limit of 150 requests per hour. I want to download a total list of followers.
When I download followers I cache the information (100 followers at a time). However if I run out of requests and have to wait until the next hour to begin again how do I know that my cache is still good? Couldn't someone un-follow while I am waiting until the next hour and then my cache is dirty? Any one have insight into this problem? Thanks
