Hi, this is probably a very simple question for those in the know. But I am not a developer. I will use the advice here to instruct my developer.
I have a web app that posts scheduled tweets by my users. Just like what bufferapp or hootsuite does.
We run a cron that runs every minute, for each tweet, it makes an api call and gets a response. If there are 20 messages, it goes one by one until it is finished.
The problem is, we are growing, so now the cron time is sometimes taking longer than a minute so they are starting to overlap.
It is my understanding that twitter does not allow multiple simultanous connections to their API. So I am guessing that we will have to send all our tweets to twitter at the same time. So at the beginning of the minute, we will make one API call to twitter that sends information on 100 tweets, for example.
I just want to make sure this is allowed and the best solution.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
