Hi Twitter and anyone else reading,
Is there a rate limit on direct messages that an app can send on behalf of users?
Today I started seeing this error for several of our users (via ruby twitter gem):
“Twitter::Error::Forbidden: There was an error sending your message: We know you have a lot to say, but you can only send so many direct messages per day. (click here for more info.)”
From looking at that page it seems that the limit should be associated with the user, though the user has only sent 9 DMs today. Is there a rate limit for apps? Looking at my database it has only sent 142 messages, distributed over ~30 users today. It also did follow about 10-15 accounts on behalf of those users today, is there a rate limit that comes into play when those two are combined?
