Rate limit is consistently shown to be exceeded for the endpoint:- '/account/verify_credentials'


For the endpoint:-’/account/verify_credentials’ I always get 0 remaining hits even after the 15 mins window has passed. As a result of which all my calls which requires verifyCredential() method to be invoked fails with rate limit exceeded error. Please help!


I am using twitter4j library for development purpose. To be specific I was facing this error after getting an authenticated instance of Twitter class(using Oauth) and calling getScreenName() method on the authenticated instance. According to twitter4j documentation getScreenName() method internally invokes verifyCredential() method for the first time call is made.
