Hey hey!

Thanks for reaching out. One important thing to mention on this one. Twitter has a soft limitation no matter what account type you use. The limitation is simply that Twitter does not give more results after an uncertain amount of pagination. For example, if you start pagination by using your account, after some time, the UI will not return more data. This limitation is not because of your account type but Twitter's global restrictions. This restriction also applies to their official API.

That's why you are not retrieving all the data. In this situation, we always suggest our users split the search into multiple chunks if possible since the pagination limitation only applies per search. In your case, that might not be doable since you are trying to get the followers and followings of the user. Twitter's Advanced Search does not have the capability of searching one account's followers or followings.

The best (and the most unoptimized) way of fetching more data is letting the actor fetch the followers or followings multiple times. As mentioned, Twitter restricts the limitation at a very uncertain time. You can get more by running the actor multiple times, but probably you cannot fetch them all.

I hope this helps. Cheers
