Q:How many user IDs or screen names are you looking up at a time?
A: It depends to the user’s popularity. I lookup for minimum 10, maximum 300 ids. I lookup them by dividing into chunks of 100 IDs at a time. When I lookup for 220 user’s data, I request 3 times.
A: When I make a 3 time request I get 1 times HTTP 502 and 2 times HTTP 200. Not all of them requests turns 502.
Q:What’s the rate at which you’re issuing requests?
Q:How many requests have you attempted in the measured time?
Q:How many of those returned 502s?
A:I couldn’t make a detailed statistics yet. I had strange data for some days, after 1.0 to 1.1 change but I couldn’t understand. I just understood the cause is users lookup. I cannot say a number yet.
Q:Are your requests divided between access tokens or issued from the same one?
A:I use each time the user’s own tokens to lookup. So every different user use different tokens. But tokens are same between the 100-sized chuncks.
Q:Are you comparing with the same set of IDs?
A:IDs are different but the only different thing inside my code is changing “1/users/lookup” to “1.1/users/lookup”
Q:Are you using authentication? If so, are your requests divided between access tokens or issued from the same one?
A:I use authentication because 1.1 dictates to have access tokens for every request.
