(REST API v.1.1) I am authenticating my Twitter REST API with my consumer key and oauth. Why do I still have a 150 requests/hr rate limit?


I’m using the Python Twitter package for connecting with Twitter data. Here is an example of my code:

import twitter
api = twitter.Api( consumer_key = ‘…’, consumer_secret = ‘…’, access_token_key = ‘…’, access_token_secret = ‘…’)

Even though I generated all of the keys and passwords on the Twitter Dev website, my API instances are still rate limited at 150/hr. Do you know what might be going wrong, and what I can do to fix it? Many thanks!


I think that is the new limit, no?
