[twitter-dev] Twitter IP Whitelisting

So here's the deal. We've had the Twitter API integrated into Pwned.com for many months now. One problem we keep running into is that it updates our members Twitter WAY later. For example, it says so and so is playing on-line, but we processed that request hours ago and then it finally shows up

To see what the status of your IP is regarding rate limit, issue the following from that IP address: curl -I http://twitter.com/users/show.xml?screen_name=dougw | grep X- RateLimit-Limit If it's well above 150 then you're whitelisted. On Sep 1, 11:28 pm, Andy Pirate piratea...@gmail.com wrote:

I don't think white-listing is going to help with a latency problem. It only gets ya way more API GET requests per hour. Latency issues are probably due to twitter infrastructure problems, i.e., delays in the back-end DB servers posting updates from the front-end UI servers. We've been seeing

If you take a look at the payload of a retweet in the examples, each retweet has the id of the original tweet as well as details about the retweet (who retweeted it, when and what the id of the retweet is). That information, specifically the retweet's id, should be sufficient for your purposes.
