I’m building out an application for nlp research that would pull in about 50,000 tweets per day – so less than 1 per second.
I’m looking at the highest tier of premium API, which has a limit of 10,000 requests per month. I don’t quite understand this.
Specifically, I’m unclear on how a “request” here translates, for e.g., to PowerTrack activity which I’m familiar with and is billed per tweet. What does the Premium limit of “10,000” (tweets, requests, something else?) really mean ? Whether that is tweets per month or requests per month, that’s like 300/day, which, could be done using the Sandbox/free tier from the looks of it. So that sounds pretty low unless I’m misunderstanding something and definitely not sufficient for my app.
Could somebody kindly clarify this as I’m very eager to get started and buy access? Thanks!
