I am in the Process of Migrating from Twitter REST API Version 1.0 to Twitter REST API 1.1
From my Point of view and Experience the Rate Limits in the new API VERSION 1.1 are very very low and breaks everything and make every Twitter Application nearly non usable.
As a example in the Version 1.0 i am able to get all my Twitter Friends by calling the function “friends/ids” several times without to hit the actual existing Rate Limits.
Now with the new Twitter REST API VERSION and the very low set Limits i am not able anymore really to get my Twitter Friends because the maximal amount of friends that can be retrieved now is new only 15 Times a 5000 People before it was 360 Times a 5000 People.
I absolute do not understand why Twitter has set the Limits such Low! This is a huge Limitation that will breaks nearly every Twitter application.
Is it possible somehow to Lift Up the Access Limitation for my Personal and for own Use Application so i am able at least to get my Twitter Friends with the new API Version without to hit every time the Limit Rate?
Thanks in advance.
