I have an app that sends a series of tweets to another twitter account. It’s not clear to me if I am hitting the posting restrictions for applications, or for me as the user.
For example, I posted series of 45 tweets (every 2 seconds), and they all posted. Then a little while later (I waited 15 minutes) I couldn’t post 2 tweets. I assumed I hit the posting limit.
It seems like once I hit this posting limit, I’m not able to post with any more consistency for some time. Since my goal is to emulate a volume of Tweets to the receiving account, how can I balance that volume against the rate limits?
I’m using OAuth, and Tweepy.
