That sounds like a fantastic idea :) - I think my problem there would be
using simplish perl scripts and not a whole lot of experience. I'm using
net::twitter to get the list of IDs, but the mechanics of then obtaining
followers using net:twitter only allowed me to pull 100 "per grab", and also
provided a next/last paging reference. This would allow me to grab sequences
of 100 qty users - but I can NOT get this to work! Examples are short. Hence
I went for what seemed a more expedient option.

Appreciate the pointer to the stream API.
