Hello!

Thanks for the interest in NodeXL!

Twitter follower network features were changed after v.251 because of changes in the Twitter API.

Please see: Over the edge: Twitter API 1.1 makes “Follows” edges hard to get

http://www.connectedaction.net/over-the-edge-twitter-api-1-1-makes-follows-edges-hard-to-get/

In the new API, Twitter makes these queries "expensive" so that a complete follower graph is difficult.

In the current version of NodeXL, use the NodeXL>Data>Import>From Twitter Users Network to get follower edges.

While there are limits on this feature, you can get a collection of follows edges this way.

Regards,

Marc
