I was just now searching someone up and looking at there tweets, I go to favorite it and I get a msg that says I’ve been rate limited! I go back to my timeline and I can’t even click and see anyones tweets or who favorited them! Idk what this means or what I did I only go on twitter from my iPod no other devices except my phone last month. Nobody else has logged in on here before… So idk what the problem is or what that even means! Is there any way to fix this and have it go back to normal or should I just deactivate my account? Please help me ASAP twitter is all I ever go on
