Dear twitter devs,
I’m a student, and I use twitter a lot. So I used python with tweepy to build an automated timetable announcer voor my own high school. People can subscribe to it using their student number and when any timetable changes are detected, they get a mention or dm. I have at the moment around 400 followers, and its still getting more and more popular. My highschool has around 1500 students.
Is what I’m doing against the twitter rules or policies?
I’m facing some problems with the rate limits, because the changes are generally published around 3 pm in the afternoon, I often hit my tweet limit for the hour. Do you have any tips regarding this limit? As an example, I found out that the limit per hour is around 120 tweets? Is this correct?
May I create multiple accounts to spread the “load”? As an example:
Our school has 2 departments: h and v, may I create an account for the h-students and a seperate account for the v-students?
