We are currently developing a web application where we amongst other things present different people. We are concerned about how your rate limiting works in relation to our application and our users.
Currently a person is displayed in the web application, along with a one time request for a few of the persons twitter posts. We are expecting many users that display several people during an hour, thus many different twitter feeds will be fetched via unauthenticated client side ajax calls.
Will your rate limiting only block the clients that “abuse” these calls, breaking your rate limit? Or will it with a growing amount of clients also eventually block our web application, being the referral, denying all our users from accessing your feeds from our page? In case the latter is true: is there a set limit or any pointers about how much traffic each user can generate before our service is blocked?
