Twitter Users

Looks up user data over Twitter's API.

Twitter API accepts a determined amount of requests in a 15 minute windows. For more details see API Rate Limits and Rate Limits: Chart . The amount of request is limited to 180 (user authentication) or 60 (application authentication), respectively. See GET users/lookup .


Column containing screen names (usually labeled "User") or IDs of twitter users.
number of retries
Sometimes Twitter returns a wrong waiting time until the 15 minute time window is reached; therefore the amount of requests is not fully reseted. In this case the waiting time is multiplied by the number of retries. If the number of retries, i.e. the multiplied waiting time, is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests, the execution will be canceled.
return intermediate results
If the number of retries is not sufficient to reset the amount of requests (and therefore the execution is canceled), the results, which were retrieved until this point in time, will be shown in output table.
