Every request takes almost a _minute_ (~60 seconds)


I am developing (in fact, have already written) a simple app that

  • calls /statuses/retweets_of_me,
  • calls /statuses/retweets/:id, and
  • shows 2 or 3 tweets before and after the retweet, using statuses/user_timeline with since_id or max_id (and count = 3).

It seems to work well except that it gets very slow after a few requests - every request takes almost a minute (that is, around 60 seconds)!

Of course, I checked with application/rate_limit_status and there seems to be nothing wrong (there are plenty of “remaining”, like “176” or “14”).

Does anybody have any idea what is wrong?
