Rate limit headers issue

rate-limits
account-activity

#1

Hi,

I’m having troubles with rate limit headers like : ‘x-rate-limit-limit’ on this endpoint : POST https://api.twitter.com/1.1/account_activity/all/:env_name/subscriptions.json

Rate limit headers are not present in the response.

Hi @vivienanglesio - you can read more about rate limits here, but you shouldn’t expect to receive rate limits back in the response.

Hi @AureliaSpecker I already read that. The doc says that this enpoint is limited to 500/request/user each 15min. But that’s not what I am experiencing in the reality. I am rate limited after 3 requests per user. Either the doc is wrong or the API is bugged. So please help…

Hello @vivienanglesio - We did end up identifying an irregularity in the system that caused our documentation to not match the actual rate limit of the premium Account Activity API. We have since implemented an update to ensure that the premium rate limit is indeed 500/request/user each 15min for both the add and delete subscription endpoints.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
