More API Requests? - Simplo


#1

Hello!

We’re starting a platform named Simplo (simplo.gg) in the coming days and we’ve already been rate limited during our testing period.

We’d greatly appreciate it if you could allow us to process more requests as our website is looking to provide a giveaway service for thousands of active users browsing it at the same time, and our Twitter API got rate limited during our testing phases rather quickly.

Basically we give out game keys to our users in return for completeing “Tasks”: Retweeting a tweet, following someone on twitter, visiting a website and other tasks like that.

With our userbase the 15 minute rates are causing errors in our website and many of our users could not participate in our giveaways because of this error. Users first connect their twitter to our app and then they click a button to follow/retweet, both of these actions have caused errors due to limitations and spam protections when we were doing a test run.

We were also receiving Error Code 226, which says the following:
“This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later.”

These issues were causing us problems already in our test run, we’d love some help. Looking forward to your reply!
