I have just started using the Python Tweepy module to extract and process Tweets. I had not understood the impact of the 420 error code and as a result, have been throttled. My code now includes the line:
api1 = tweepy.API(auth, wait_on_rate_limit=True)
This should mean that I will no longer ignore 420 errors, which I had responded to with a 60 pause and then retried. I understand that I would have been throttled for exponentially longer periods of time as a result. This code has been removed, but I still cannot access my feed.
I have also add a routine that will testt whether the rate limit of the last request has been reached and wait until it is ok to proceed with the next request.
What can I do to get my streaming feed back? My application ID is 536223870
