I wouldn’t normally have considered this, until I read the following in the Twitter docs:
If user A launches application Z, and app Z makes 10 calls to user A’s mention timeline in a 15 minute window, then app Z has 5 calls left to make for that window
Then user A launches application X and app X calls user A’s mention timeline 3 times, then app X has 12 calls left for that window
The remaining value of calls on application X is isolated from application Z’s, despite the same user A
This seems to imply that a single user can have multiple API accounts. Clearly this is a way around the rate limit issues, hence I’m sceptical.
Could someone confirm? Thanks in advance.
