Have you ever paged through Twitter friend pages? They use cursors in the URLs for better scalability.
It sucks for two big reasons:
- they only show 20 at a time (with no other options)
- If you go to http://twitter.com/followers and click ‘Next’…then hit ‘Back’. FAIL! The page is blank.
It might be hella useful to have a Gigantic friend (or follower) page which would display up to 5,000 friends at once. Then, implement a bunch of features like Follow, Block, Report for Spam, which lists are they on, add to list, pic, bio & location, etc.
