Twitter update not working right

Post by scoobs » Sat 27 Oct 2018 8:49 am

Something has changed and it isn't uploading like it was used to be once every 65 mins , but it isn't doing it now I've restarted and same issue.

Any ideas? I guess twitter has changed something

Twitter are now enforcing their tweet limits more rigorously - both on a per-user and a per-application basis. As all our Cumulus tweets come from the same application, then the limit is reached easily.
I am looking at putting a script together to try and get around the per-application limit. Their API is quite easy to follow so it shouldn't take too much effort.

Any update?

I did have twitter working fine, but now we seem to be hitting the limit a lot.

Has anyone applied for a developer account to get the APi limit elevated ?
