I’ve searched all over the place before posting this.
I’m aware that users have 15-minute blocks where they have 15 writes allowed. So my app should be able to tweet 14 tweets per 15 minutes safely. I made a mistake with my app at first and had it tweeting far too fast. It got to 124 tweets in about that time. This confuses me for several reasons.
If the limit for a 15-minute window is 15 tweets, how did my script manage to pump out over 100 tweets in the space of about 20 minutes?
The error my Python IDLE received at the 124th tweet was that the user’s daily limit had been reached. I was thinking that if 15 tweets are allowed per 15 minutes, then that would be the case all day. I should be able to post over 1000 tweets a day. So is there a daily limit on top of the 15-minute limits as well? What is that limit?
Thanks for reading!
