Number of followers

Aug 31 at 6:06 PM
Hi. I have done a Twitter User Network Search, and I found out that the resulting list and graph only show 2000 followers (out of more than 4000). I have repeated the search for an other +4000 Twitter User, and the number of followers that was given to me was also 2000.
Is there some sort of limitation on the search?
Thx

Hello!

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

We have recently (v.360) modified the NodeXL Pro Twitter Users Importer to allow for a user selected value for the maximum number of follows connections to collect.

See: NodeXL>Data>Import>Import from Twitter Users Network

Note: The Follower relationship is delivered by the Twitter API at a very slow rate.

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

Note: Turn on the "Basic network plus friends and followers (very slow!)."

Note: You may want to uncheck the "Import only the Twitter users I am interested in" option (this limits the results to the people on the list you provide. If unchecked, people mentioned by the people on the list (but not themselves on the list) will also be included.)

Note: You may then select the Limit friends and followers to NNNN per user.

If you have the time (and it could take days or longer) you may now select any number of followers.

Regards,

Marc
