    Hello Black Hatter's!

    With the recent "hiccup" over at ManageFlitter I'm getting tired of Twitter messing with service provider's API's and restricting or modifying their API's.

    My question is this... can someone clarify the difference between API and HTTP to get Twitter followers? Is one better than the other? Pro's / Cons?

    I'm dealing now with my third service provider and their API issues and frankly I'm getting a little tired of it. Is this normal to have this many issues?

    Any clarification would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
