Need to collect large number of Twitter IDs for academic research purposes. the typical imacro script approach does not work -- it is too slow, and we need the script to be around 10x faster.
we are collecting twitter IDs based on the followers of certain accounts. So, input would be the account whose followers to collect, output would be a flat file of the IDs.
the script would need to keep track of what follower it is up to, so that it can continue at the same place in the event of service interruption, etc.
