v1.1 API to get Media Rate Limit?


#1

Hi,

My application uses https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update_with_media.json to upload a photo. Is there an API to get the media rate limit, remaining, and reset date time without uploading a photo?

Seems like that information should be in http://api.twitter.com/1.1/application/rate_limit_status.json

Thanks
-John

Not at this time – it will continue to behave like 1.0-era limits until write-based limits become part of version 1.1. You should be getting the media “rate limiting” headers in your responses – these really belong to the user (like tweeting and direct message limits), not the app and aren’t actually rate limits but allowances in the current model.
