Hi,

In the docs I read that there is a limit of 1.000 direct messages sent per day per account.

Is this limit enforced for apps? I am building a bot, so reaching the limit is quite easy. I hope that registered apps have much higher limits.

Hi, i don’t think so i think the limit is 1000 dm for registered apps too. But i’d like to have a twitter staff’s opinion about it

The limit is enforced on apps, as well. There are also other limits to discourage spammy behavior. These can change over time based on how spam attack vectors change over time and are not documented. Stay tuned for more information in the near future for how apps can work within limits for use cases like chatbots.
