Twitter: on signon, get friends/followers

I think Twitter should get all friends and followers on signon, not just when a Tweet by them is received.

So, on signon, just poll once.

That API call returns just numeric user IDs, so not very useful.

But see changeset:devel,598. This is now done, and for extra niceness it's done before joining you to the &twitter channel so you won't see a join flood but everyone immediately in /names.

Yay, this rocks. Happy birthday, too :)

Still experiencing weirdnesses on this with bzr-devel-600. After "Getting contact list" and "Getting initial statuses", I have 102 nicks in my Twitter channel. But I am following almost 300 accounts, so some still join only when they post something.

I haven't looked at the code, but this sounds to me like something with the "100 people" condition of

Ah, interesting one. The "cursor" is a 64-bit integer, the code only used a 32-bit signed integer and ended up with negative values, thinking it hit the end of the list already.

Note that I tested this using the BitlBee account by listing followers instead of following. I don't have access to any Twitter account that follows >100 people. Please let me know how this works, in my test I still didn't seem to get a full list. Oddly enough, Twitter says I hit the end of the list.

Still doesn't work, 102 nicks again with bzr-devel-602.

Another restart and I have 202 nicks at join. But still not all :)

It starts to look like Twitter's fault to me. Whenever I try to fetch any list containing more than 200 items, the second 100-item list claims to be the end of the list. (next_cursor=0) Not sure what to do here.

WTF, if I do the same thing on the command line, I get the full list. Stupid Twitter. :-(

Alright, it was really me being the idiot.


It really works now. Srsly.
