I’m pretty new to the Twitter API and I have a question. I tried researching but it’s not clearly specified anywhere(or at least I didn’t find it).
I read in the Rate Limiting documentation that different methods have different rate limits per window(15 mins) for example :
GET statuses/home_timeline 15
GET users/show 180
It’s not clear to me what happens if I call the 2 methods with the same oAuth token. Basically I create an object that uses oAUth and then using that object I call first users/show 180 times and statuses/home_timeline 15 times in the 15 mins window. Is this ok or the calls add up to 195 to go over the limit? If it goes over what is the limit the minimum number or the maximum number?
Logically the rate limit should be per method called but I wanted to double check.
Thanks, and sorry if it’s a stupid question.
