Is this allowable with the api?


#1

Hey All,

Really new at development, but trying my hand at my first project with the Twitter API and wanted to make sure I was following the rules.

I am looking to scan one persons twitter stream to see how often they are using a keyword in their tweets. If I am following the 350 request per limit - am I ok to do this via the api?

Thanks!

You should find this possible to do within rate limits, provided you’re doing the counting of the keywords and processing their user timeline as documented here: [node:6213].

Hi Taylor,

Thanks so much for the quick reply! If i was just doing this for 1 stream and just looking at the most recent tweet, I assume I would be fine?

Also, is the 350 request per hour the correct rate limit?

Thanks a lot.
