I was searching for the same thing, so it would be great to know if this "auto-follow" sort of usage of twitter API is allowed or not?
Example: On a twitter authentication (OAauth) based website, when USER1 logs into the website will follow 5 other members (that might or not follow back). If it`s allowed, what would be the API usage limit? Would it be ok to restrict this auto-follow option on 5 followings / member / each one hour - basis? Thank you. Sincerly, Cristian. P.S.: I`m not sure what happent to my first post, this is the 2nd on this topic. I appologise if reply needed to be approved and that`s why it didn`t show the 1st one.
