API Rate Limits. statuses/update calls doesnt cause changes in limits output


#1

Hi everybody.

Through twitter application i perform status updates via “statuses/update” calls.
As i understand “1.1/application/rate_limit_status.json” call should return me how many calls have left to reset time (so called window). But those posts doesnt cause any changes in “1.1/application/rate_limit_status.json” call.
The questions are:

  1. Do i have limits for statuse/update calls for my twitter app?
  2. Do statuse/update calls change response from “1.1/application/rate_limit_status.json”?

Thanks for reply.
P.S. i tried to post to user time lime fro 200 times and twitter return code 200 for every call.

There are indeed rate limits for write actions like POST statuses/update - you can learn more about them here and here.
