    I have a huge list (several million) user IDs that I want to convert to usernames. Does anybody have a bot for that?

    Thanks!

    i can't seem to convert more than 3k at a time, i have the full version too, i think it's a limit set by twitter, however i tried when only one account was loaded into the tool, maybe if i load more accs, it will convert more than 3k in one go

    Life would be easier if FL can read ID numbers.

    I was thinking about buying the full version, but I am disappointed to hear it have the same problem. Also I don't think it the twitter limitations, becouse once your done with 3K you can load it again and convert 3 more...I think its the bot limitations.

    that can be too, however one would think that the full version is unlimited :)

    it sucks though, because scraping uids are multiple times faster than scraping usernames, you can scrape like 300k uids in an hour
