    Does anyone know of a tool or method to export a user's followers to a text file?

    I have TA Pro. I don't think it can gather a user's followers and export, can it?

    I have TweetAttacks pro as well and I am not aware of this feature - will do some research and check back if I find it.

    No tools that I know of, but just coded this up real quick.

    Step 1: Load this URL in your browser (replace user_id with the target user's username)
    Code:
    https://api.twitter.com/1/followers/ids.json?cursor=-1&screen_name=user_id
    Step 2: Paste this code into the address bar and hit enter.*
    Code:
    javascript:var x=document.body.innerHTML;var a=x.indexOf("ids")+6;var b=x.indexOf("]", a);var i=x.substring(a, b); i=i.replace(/,/gi,"<br/>");document.body.innerHTML=i;
    Step 3: Copy the Twitter IDs that are now printed within the window.

    Step 4: ???

    Step 5: Profit.

    * Anyone using FF6+ won't be able to run the script unless they install NoScript and permit the execution of unlinked bookmarklet code. Run it in Chrome or IE.

    I am gathering users all the time. You have to go to module @replies/@mention generator and there is option to scrape followers or following, just put the account of the person to take his followers.
    Put option to ignore people (bots) without pictures and uncheck limit of followers, when finished do a Save - Users only.
    that's it.

    Do the above then use iMacros to scrape and save into CSV. If you want PM me and I can make the macro for you.

    So, any other solutions to this? TweetAttacks is a mess and wont even open for me even though I paid for it already.

    I need to scrape the followers of a user like YESTERDAY. ASAP. Pronto. lol

    TweetAdder fucks up and only scrapes like 10% of a user's list before giving an error.

    ANYONE?

    Also by using the above method you get only first 5000 followers ID's.
    What about the rest...?

    What are you after - the screen names or the numerical ID?

    if everything else fails use friendorfollow what rogerebert suggested above, it's not really necessary, but for further reference you can check out my post about how to do this with friendorfollow in spoonfed mode:
