Finding rate limits for POST requests


I’m trying to find and monitor the rate limits for certain POST requests, specifically /statuses/destroy/:id

The documentation page says “Rate Limited? Yes” however I can’t seem to find any information about the limits for that method in /application/rate_limit_status or in the X-Rate-Limit-* headers which don’t seem to be set for that request.

I understand about the rate limit for POST requests being shared among applications used by a single user, but is there a way to find out what the limit, remaining and reset times are?


I’ve corrected the documentation on this method to indicate it’s not “rate limited” since we use that term to have a very specific meaning.

Sorry, we don’t publish the allowances for writes or the schedules on which they are enforced.
