My application (@whattrackis) replies to uses with a prediction of what track a train will depart from. Currently, I am using the REST API through Tweepy in Python.
The program runs every minute via crontab to ensure it does not incur a 429 error, but lately I have been getting a few of those 429/API Limit exceeded errors.
Given the few 429 errors I’ve received, and the fact that the program will eventually need to respond to more than one user and thus tweet more than once a minute, how might I do this within Twitter’s API limits. (I also want to add a feature to send the correct track if the prediction was wrong)
