When using statusnet Twiiter compatible API, we can get ids list of people following or friends of a specific user using /api/friends/ids/1.xml (as an example). These ids are profile ids (specially for remote user).
But when using /api/users/show/XX.xml where id is one of the XX found above, we can poll only locally registered user. There, id is user id and not profile id anymore which is somewhat confusing
Is there any way to be able to poll remote user profile based on the id ?
