I want to search for lists on Twitter using the Twitter API. I have tried using REST API with OAUTH and since the results are paged after 20, I can't seem to make large requests fast. In fact, it can take an entire minute or longer to complete all the back/forth requests involved with paging.
What I am doing now but takes too long: 1. Get 'users/search' with a topic, say "Lakers" a. 20 users are returned (only 20 is fine for this step) 2. Look up 'username/lists/memberships' for each of the 20 users a. Get ALL lists (which requries slowly paging by making multiple requests) 3. I will compare and sort the lists on my end to get my search results of lists for the topic "Lakers". Is there a better API or call to use to make this request fast? Thanks in advance for any help. -- 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
