hi. i am building an api for a project, and a portion implements
twitter. Cakephp is my framework. The problem i am having is despite
my approach, i am getting

screen_name=user_screen_name_example","error":"Rate limit exceeded.
Clients may not make more than 150 requests per hour."}

However, if i query the twitter api to see how many requests i truly
have left, i am no where near 150. I have in my controller var
$cacheAction = "1800"; and i am using the Cache helper so as to limt
the hits on the request...

[[ the approaches]]
The first attempt was to use the Twittersource from the bakery(http://

The second approach was to curl the results through a custom method.
function _getCurrentTweets($user = NULL)

                $tw = curl_init();
                curl_setopt($tw, CURLOPT_GET, 1);
                if (!$user) {
                        curl_setopt($tw, CURLOPT_URL, $this->Tweet->tweets);// 
                        curl_setopt($tw, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $this->Tweet->login);

                        $t_url = $this->Tweet->tweetsWithUser.$user;  // ie:
                        curl_setopt($tw, CURLOPT_URL, $t_url);
                curl_setopt($tw, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
                $twi = curl_exec($tw);

                $tweeters = new SimpleXMLElement($twi);
                return $tweeters;

perhaps there is a bigger picture i am missing? I had thought this was
a caching issue, but now i am not so sure.
