Over the last week or so, it seems the amount of friendships/create requests that are being returned with http_code 403 and error message “You are unable to follow more people at this time. Learn more here” has gone up drastically.
For nearly every single user of mine, they are getting this error on follow requests when most of them are nowhere near any published following limits, either total or for the day.
In fact, some have reported seeing this error messages on the first and only few follows of a brand new day when they only have a few hundred total friends and followers.
This just started over the several days or so with my application and I am wondering what is happening. Are the limits changing? Is my application being throttled? Is this happening to anyone else? If my users tried to make the same follows from a different app or from Twitter’s website, would they work or get the same error message?
Is anyone else seeing this?
