Thanks, Matt I looked at the user/lookup. I have three questions on using that API to get ids and nickname of friends/followers.
1. user/lookup returns "up to 100 users worth of extended information". Are the users friends or followers? I would need to differentiate friends and followers. 2. If the friends/followers are more that 100, I will have to make multiple calls to get user info. For instance, 10 calls to get 1,000 user info. Does Twitter allow multiple calls to user/lookup one after another. Is there any limitation? 3. This is not big issue. user/lookup still returns extended information. However, most of them I don't need at this moment. If there is a lightweight API to just get friends/followers' ids and nicknames, that'll be ideal. Thanks again.
