Is it possible to extract Twitter users ID's


#1

Hello I was just wondering if it is possible to use DataSift to extract the id’s of users following a certain Twitter account, I found that I can use this twitter API (https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/followers/ids) after inserting it into an application or a tool. I am new to this whole thing and I can’t insert an API to any of the tools or Applications I am using.

So for example my Twitter handler is @mustafa_Amro and I want to extract the ID’s of my followers is it possible to do this with DataSift?

For Twitter, DataSift currently only provides data about Tweets. To get a list of your followers, you will need to use the Twitter API.

I see, well thank You,
But since DataSift provides Twitter user ID’s in the collected Data I thought this can be done as well, again thank you for your answer.
