Is there any way to get a higher rate limit? I just want to get a higher limit for the get followers request



I’m trying to create a REST API application that creates a random chain of people based on who follows whom. The problem is that the chain can only be a maximum of 15 people long as of right now because of the restriction on calling the followers/ids request. Is there any place where I can ask for a higher rate limit on this request?


All applications have to abide by the rate limits. A few of the endpoints had their limits raised a few months ago, but there are no current plans that I’m aware of to change those around friends and followers.


Thank you so much for your response! I will find another way do to what I am trying to do.
