I briefly skimmed through API documentation and I’m not sure if I understand everything correctly. I am building an app where I need to periodically get user’s timelines. I guess my app could have a background job and just call Twitter API every minute or so but:
- I’m not sure this is scalable if lot of users start to use the app
- I’m not user if I won’t hit limit by doing this.
From what I understand, Streaming API gets you realtime data, I don’t really need this to be real-time, more like every minute or even five minutes.
