Moved this to a new topic as it was not related to the Streaming API.

Our rate limits are documented in the support help pages, and also in the API documentation.

Hi Andy,

Thanks again for replying.

  1. I have gone through the API rate limits as given by twitter. But, previously I came to know that there is no rate limit as far as sending/POST of Direct Messages are concerned.

  2. I am building an application where I need to send more than 1000 Direct Messages daily and again without any time window limitations.

  3. Also I am not able to see the actual rate limits for GET request regarding DM’s at https://dev.twitter.com/rest/public/rate-limits.

Can you help me in this?

Thanks
Kuldeep Singh

Rate limits for DMs are adaptive due to our antispam rules, but from the support page I linked you’ll see that the max is 1000 per day. I don’t know what the limit is on GET at the moment.
