I’ve had a client request a custom Twitter timeline feed module. The website is very high traffic. Unfortunately the client are unable to access their servers, so it’ll need to be created entirely in HTML/CSS/JS. Would my understanding be correct, if using the REST API without user authentication (oAuth is a bit overkill for this project) each user/client would count as one request, because the website is very high traffic this would result in the rate limit exceeding very quickly?
I understand that the normal way to do something such as this would be to make the calls via a server, which then cache’s the feed for the user/client computer to request?
