My understanding is that there is a limit of 50 requests per month with a Sandbox account, and 100 tweet max per request. For example, when I requested 100 older tweets from a particular account I used up 1 request, while when I requested 500 older tweets form a particular account I used up 5 requests.
My question is why there is a 1 million tweet limit, given that I could at most request 50 x 100 = 5000 tweets. Am I missing something? Is there a way to request more than 100 tweets per request?
Thanks for clarifying!
