I’m looking at making a service which one of the key features is being able to sign up to be
@mentioned when a specific event happens. So you sign up, when a specific event happens that you asked to be notified for it tweets you this following structure:
@username message url.com
Obviously with the 2400 daily limit for status updates this puts quite a big lid on what we could do. Is there any way around this, or is this sort of personalised
@notification on an event in place to stop accounts ‘spamming’ users?
We definitely wouldn’t be spamming users as we’d only do 1
@mention per event they ask to be notified for, but if 2400+ people ask to be notified for an event then we’ve already hit our daily limit.
We thought about creating multiple accounts to get round this but I assume that would be frowned upon?
The biggest thing we’re wary of is people thinking we’re spamming but we’re not as they ask for the notifications.
Appreciate any advice anyone has
