Twitter Raises API Limit to 100 Requests Per Hour

No Twitter Whale

I didn’t have the chance to blog about it, but I noticed the other day that Twitter set their API limit back to 70 requests per hour without mentioning it on their status blog. I just checked the blog again, and they’ve actually raised the limit to 100 requests per hour. I’ve been quite disenchanted with Twitter lately, not only for their downtime, but also for their removal or severe limitation of integral services in an effort to keep the service up and running. This started me down a path away from Twitter, not really replacing it with anything, just not using it, but this may cause me to start using it more heavily. Congrats to the Twitter staff for this excellent development. Keep up the good work.
