Scrape follows of, start at preset position

Jul 6, 2015 at 11:15 PM
Is it possible to continue a previous search?

I mean, lets say there is a user with 200,000 followers and I want to scrape them.

I run a search and get the first 100k

Then at a later date I want to return 100k-200k, is there anyway to do this without starting from 0?

There is not any built in functionality for this. I agree that this could be an enhancement of the library but I don't think this is a priority.
What you need is to store the next_cursor property coming back from the followers cursor query.

Please look at the solution of this discussion to get an improved version of GetFollowerIds.

Let me know if this makes sense and if it helps.
