The Only Twitter Applications List You'll Ever Need Twitter is a status-updating or microblogging social networking website. It is a breakthrough in social networking because it takes communication into another level. Before, a person can only update his status (eg. what he’s doing, where he is) at a certain time. But with Twitter and it’s mobile integration, he can update his status almost all throughout the day and get in touch with people that matters to him the most. But the functions of Twitter do not stop there.
Rate Limiting Per User or Per Application Rate limiting in version 1.1 of the API is primarily considered on a per-user basis — or more accurately described, per access token in your control. If a method allows for 15 requests per rate limit window, then it allows you to make 15 requests per window per leveraged access token. This is similar to the way API v1 had per-user/per-access token limits when leveraging OAuth. When using application-only authentication, rate limits are determined globally for the entire application. If a method allows for 15 requests per rate limit window, then it allows you to make 15 requests per window — on behalf of your application.
