Stream API Limits


#1

Hello,

So I am attempting to understand how exactly the stream API rate limits work. I understand when/why I get rate limited. But I just don’t understand how/if I should handle it. I am using the statuses/sample endpoint.

Thanks.

You can just ignore it - if you are on the sample stream then you’ll just get a randomised 1% sample of the firehose, and any limit exceeded notices can just be ignored.
