I was hoping on adding some ajax code to my web app to allow auto- completing of @usernames as you start typing eg: [...@jon] @jonathan @jon_smith @jonny I suspect I'll need to cache the names on my server, but was wondering if there was a quick API call to get just the usernames of the people you follow.
statuses/friends gets me the username, but I also end up with more data than I need (bandwidth), and have to navigate in blocks of 100s (time). friends/ids looks perfect, limited info, brings back 5000 in one go, however I only get the ids. Is there a (hidden) option to get usernames instead of ids with friends/ ? Else if I have a user who is following 3000 people I will need to cursor through the api 30 times, just to build a cache file, by the time that is complete I'm sure the user will have completed the name. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
