Hello! I am just starting developing my app. I got the oAuth thing to work using pecl oauth, which is great and was easy.
Now the question: What should I do after user is logged via oAuth, and after I got array of user data from this url: https://twitter.com/account/verify_credentials.json I have 2 choices: store the data in the database and put cookie in user's browser and next time user visits, I can just pull the username, name, etc from my database Or I can use user's access token/secret that I also store in database to get the fresh data from Twitter. Getting fresh data will guarantee that I have user's latest color settings, background, avatar, description But I may run over 150 requests per hour very easily. How is this usually done by other app developers? What's the best practice for synchronizing user's settings with Twitter?
