I am new to development and recently found out about the rate limiting feature of GET statuses/user_timeline api.
Now,I have an android app in which I will be using an app only OAuth to fetch the time line of an account. Now according the rate limit, only 300 requests can be made per 15 minute window. So which of the following is correct:
- Only 300 instances of the downloaded app can make a request in a defined 15 minute window period.
- Each instance of the downloaded app can make at most 300 requests in 15 minute window period.
Can some body please answer the above question?
Thanks in advance.
