I have a site for twitter based tools. One of the options was to enable users see the people their non-friend-followers and non-follower-friends. The only way I could see to achieve this is to gather and store the complete list of followers and friends locally and calculate from that. This is done at the time of login(oAuth) . For small accounts it is working ok. But for large accounts (one of the accounts for testing with has a total number of followers+friends > 30000) it is taking from 20 seconds to anything up to 2 minutes.
Any suggestions? anybody? -- 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
