It would work like this.
- User visits my website, and enters their twitter username/password to authorize my web app to make calls on their behalf.
- The user types in a hashtag, and they are given a stream of tweets containing that hashtag in a box they can look at.
The public stream api docs say
“Connections: Each account may create only one standing
connection to the public endpoints, and connecting to a public stream
more than once with the same account credentials will cause the oldest
connection to be disconnected.Clients which make excessive
connection attempts (both successful and unsuccessful) run the risk of
having their IP automatically banned.”
It seems like my web application will work without getting me IP banned, but I wanted confirmation. Is this type of web application possible within the api limits? Thanks! Would it matter how many visitors visited my site and did this? are there limits based on that? Thanks.
