Policy on Streaming APIs and Multiple Accounts


What’s the policy on using the Filter API with multiple accounts to get around the 400-Term Limit for non-commercial purposes?


Bump – If someone could share some insight ASAP, that would be great. This is time critical. I’m trying to make sure we don’t violate any Twitter policies. Thanks!


The Streaming API’s limitations are meant to be considered on a 1 stream per application model – that one stream should represent all of your users and if the 400 term limit is constraining for those users, you would then possibly move on to a [node:10244, title=“partner provider of data”] or otherwise tier your service.

See [node:14935] for some discussion on this topic.
