    I have been using tweetadder for some time however it seems when Im trying to follow another users followers it stops short of following them all.
    For instance I just found a user that I wanted to follow his followers. He has 71,000 followers. I click "followers of a user" add his handle in the box and it starts making a list
    however it stopped at 6,239 so I ran it again this time it stopped at 4,052 once again I run it and it stops at 7,986. Any suggestions to help me identify or fix this issue
    would be greatly appreciated.

    I've had this problem, but I usually just restart the program and it works fine.

    Well you can only follow 1000 a day so that might be your problem.

    I have the same problem. Restarting the program sometimes allows it to find more, but it seems with some users it just wont grab the whole list no matter what. I gave up trying to fix that a while ago, its just hit and miss.

    yeah it probably times out because its grabbing all of the users' stats like last tweet date, tweet message etc.

    This issue is that it is scraping the twitter server to get all these usernames. So obviously Twitter is going to issue some restrictions to stop server overload.

    Tweetadder takes a long time to scrape thousands of usernames and the most I've ever scraped is 11,000 from a 100,000 followed user.

    This is an issue that affects everybody and is not the fault of the Tweetadder software.

    Had the same problem but I think I found the solution:

    - turn off all accounts apart from one
    - make sure no activity is going on for that account (e.g. automatic follows)
    - close and re-open tweet adder

    After doing this I was finally able to load the complete list of followers of a 17K account.
