Rate limitation of Twitter Search API


#1

Hi

How high is the rate limitation of the Twitter Search API?

Is it possible to search all 30 seconds to 1 minute for an hash tag of an event?

thank you

Hey Ueli,

The Search Rate Limit isn’t made public to discourage unnecessary search usage and abuse. But you’ll be fine with one request every 30 seconds :slight_smile:

Think to identify your requests with an User Agent and (ideally) an HTTP Referrer string. More info available on our [node:121] documentation page.
