    Just go somewhere wall and follow his or her friends. In result you will get many followers or you can find many sites on Google from where you can get 1000 of followers for free of cost.

    and how is this an answer to OP's question?

    to OP:
    use the twitter API:
    Code:
    https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/followers/ids
    it will give you not the usernames, but the ids, you can get as much as 5,000 user ids per page

    for example:
    HTML:
    https://api.twitter.com/1/followers/ids.json?screen_name=aplusk
    change the username 'aplusk' at the end to the desired username

    You just need to follow this pagination estructure to get more than 5k followers:

    'http://api.twitter.com/1/friends/ids.json?cursor='.$cursor.'&screen_name='.$account.''
