I am investigating options for showing a twitter widget on a website.
I am considering using the Twitter provided Profile Widget (http://

I wanted to clarify what rate limiting policy (if any) applies to this

>From reading the documentation, the widget does not make authenticated
calls, and therefore a client IP limit would be applied. As the call
to twitter is made via javascript from the client browser, the limit
would then be placed on the client IP (150 calls per hour).

The widget will show for various twitter users who register with my
site (i.e. they say what their twitter name is and on their public
page, the twitter widget will show their last couple of tweets). The
render rate will be much higher than 150 per hour in total, but for an
individual browser should be much less.

Finally, what happens when a large number of clients (browsers) are
behind a proxy such as at a university or large company?

Thank you
