Querying lots of followers on Twitter

I want to display the FollowerNetwork of a Twitter user with many (almost 100,000) users
A query like
fols = SocialMediaData[{"Twitter", "ArminWolf"}, "FollowerIDs"]
returns only 5000 users.
Is there a way of getting all the users (possibly using multiple requests)?

Searching online, it appears that twitter's API has a limit of 5000 followers that can be accessed at a time.

There are discussions online of different methods of working around this limit per query that you might find useful:

To use some of these methods, you may need to directly use the twitter API.
