Requests timeout without apparent reason, after a while

rate-limits
api

#1

I’m using Ruby Twitter API gem. Sometimes I get “execution expired” error. Gem author said, that it’s a problem with Twitter API, possibly IP blacklisting.

So I have a question:

  • Do you have any secondary rate limiting in place, besides standard rate limits?
  • Is there a way to check, if my IP has been put on a blacklist?
