if they are logging in as their account they can only send 250 Direct Messages 
per day.

Last year, Twitter imposed reasonable limits to help prevent system and user 
abuse.  (You can read more about that here 
<http://twitter.zendesk.com/forums/10711/entries/15364>  ) If you hit a Twitter 
limit, we will tell you by showing an error message in your browser when you 
try to perform an action. If you've hit a limit, it means you've exceeded one 
of these limits:

*       1,000 updates per day
*       250 direct messages per day
*       150 API requests per hour

Subject: [twitter-dev] Whitelist DM limit Question

I'm developing an application and I need to find out how the DM limit
will work if I get it Whitelisted.

Does the expanded DM limit for whitelisted applications only apply to
DM's directly from the account associated with the application that
has been whitelisted, or does it apply to an account that uses my

For example if my application is linked to my account named
MyDmAccount and a user with an account called SomeUser uses my
application to send DMs. Can SomeUser send an increased amount of DMs
through my application, or does the allowed increase in DMs only apply
to DMs send directly from MyDmAccount?

Trying to design this application to stay within the lines and need to
figure this out before moving forward.
