Hi Leon,

Have you considered using the users/lookup method instead of users/show?
users/lookup allows you to retrieve the details of up to 100 user_ids or
screen_names in a single request.

There is more information about this method on our developer resources site:
    http://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/users/lookup

Best,
