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


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.


Question is closed. Post to timeline is unlimited.


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