    Twitter api limits

    Anders,

    We are using skybrud in the context of a console app, this app will get for about 300 people potential 4 lots of data, twitter,facebook,instagram and youtube.  For twitter there is 

    TwitterFollowers
    TwitterTweets
    TwitterFollowing
    TwitterFavourites
    LatestTweet

    I know that twitter api has rate limits https://dev.twitter.com/rest/public/rate-limits also when you call twitter endpoints they do send back how many calls you have left, does skybrud expose that information? If not I guess I can look at the end points I am calling via skybrud then make some calculations and make batched staggered requests.

    This is console app running over night so no issues with timeouts etc.

    Regards


    Ismail

    Hi Ismail,

    Rate limiting information is currently not exposed directly in Skybrud.Social. Each Twitter response class has a Response property, which is a reference to an instance of SocialHttpResponse. This class then has a Headers property from which you can read the rate limiting information manually.

    I have created an issue on GitHub, and will see if I can implement it the next time I'm working on Skybrud.Social ;)

    Anders,

    Cool, for now what I have done is determined which apis i call and its 2 and they have 180 and 300 limit in 15mins, so i will just batch in 180 over 15mins.

    Regards

    Hi Ismail,

    Rate limiting information is now exposed in the latest code in the repository. You can use it like this:

    TwitterStatusMessageResponse response = service.Statuses.GetStatusMessage(statusId);
    
    int limit = response.RateLimiting.Limit;
    int remaining = response.RateLimiting.Remaining;

    Anders,

    Brilliant this is working a treat, also notice you have added for instagram, i believe from docs for token you can have 5000 per hr so for now i will leave that as is.

    Regards

    Ismail
