Getting rate limited even cache my site is too big

api

#1

I’m just using twitter for searches. How do I increase my rate limit?


#2

Can you explain exactly what you’re trying to achieve, and what issue you are hitting? That would help us to understand the appropriate solution or options. Thanks.


#3

Sure, so I built a website that as of right now is doing about 200,000 searches a day (video, web, social) or depending on the hour from 10k to 20k searches per hour. I’m using the search rest api in order to do a query for each search done that isn’t in cache for say the past 3600 seconds, although I would like to have smaller cache.

What’s the purpose of the searches?

If you want to display Tweets, have you considered using Twitter’s embedded timelines?


#5

To display recent tweets with the search terms in them. There appears to be no programatic way to use twitter’s emebded timelines for many keywords that I am aware of since you have to pass the widget id for each one.

@andypiper any luck? Given I can’t affored gnip there is no alternative in embedding search terms, or using the api without the rate limit?


#7

Nothing that I can suggest as an alternative.
