Trouble Understanding Rate Limits



I’m working with the Streaming API using oAuth to basically get a list of the latest tweets by a user. I plan on making this a CMS plugin where the user enters their API Credentials and the account they want to pull the tweets from. My questions is - since I have to use MY access token and the user has to use THEIR key will I quickly hit my API limit? Does the 15 minute limit apply to MY token or THEIR key?

I guess I’m trying to understand how to scale this using the API without going over the limits so any insight would be helpful, thanks!


The rate limit is on a per-user base not per app base, so you should have no problems with rate limits.
