Tokens


#1

I didn’t manage to find an answer to my questions in the discussions so apologies if I missed it (not a programmer). I found the following and if I understand them correctly:

GETs the header photo from a twitter account
https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/users/profile_banner

POSTs the header photo to a twitter account
https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/post/account/update_profile_image

Per the above, these are my questions:

  1. Can I GET/POST a header photo from/to a twitter account without using a token?
  2. If tokens are needed for the GET/POST actions and anyone could GET/POST their header photos through a free programme online, how many people would be able to use the programme until the token limit was reached?
  3. Both the above articles say that the GET/POST requests are “Rate limited”. Is this limitation somehow related to the tokens?

Thanks!
