How do twitter mashup websites stay under the api limit?


#1

I’m trying to figure out how all of these sentiment analysis sites are able to search all of twitter thousands of times a day without exceeding the api limit…

For example, http://www.socialmention.com/search?t=all&q=dogs&btnG=Search&filter_source=twitter

lets you query as many times as you want. How? What kind of black magic are they using?
