Confused with rate limits on apps


#1

Hello Im coding an app using rest api v1.1 making user oauth and grant access to the app to analyze their tweets.Generating personal infographic data.
I still havent understand rate limits,are this limits individuals per user or global per app?

The user-based limits when using a user-based access token are unique to the application-user combination for you. There is also a second pool that is your app-only auth rate limit pool which is intrinsic only to your application.

So, just to clarify, if I want to use app-only auth to access one user’s public Twitter list (using GET list/statuses) on an iOS app with 200 unique users, only 180 of them could make the above request in a 15 minute time period (the rate limit page says 180 requests per 15 minute window)? Thanks.
