Rate limiting time frame

#1

I understand the rate limiting on twitter streaming APIs, however how would I be able to determine the length i have to wait to be able to call the API again? Is there a python function that will display the remaining time needed to wait? Or do I just have to wait until it’s working again

There’s a page on connections and guidance here.

You should avoid repeatedly connecting in a short period of time, and exponentially back off.

You’re only going to be able to make a couple of connections per account before having the earliest one disconnected. The standard streaming API is not designed or intended for large scale usage.

There is not currently a python client that will perform what you are looking for.
