@anywhere rate limits


Hi there,

I see that the rate limit per Server IP Address is 150 per hour and for an authenticated user is 350 per hour. Even a request for the authenticated users details deducts a point from your limit.

Does @anywhere for website integration allow you to obtain the same information as per the Twitter API and does it count again the Server IP or user’s rate limit?

Many thanks


Hi Craig,

@Anywhere is a client-side way to use the API, so unauthenticated & authenticated requests alike are counted against the end-user’s rate limit quota. Unauthenticated requests would count against their IP address rate limit of 150 requests per hour and authenticated requests would count against their per-user per-IP address rate limit of 350 requests per hour.


Brilliant, thanks for clarifying :slight_smile:
