Hi there

We also thought we were not receiving the correct rate limit - however
the account/rate_limit_status method doesn't actually correctly
reflect these new request limits. Instead, you'll need to (at least,
until - or if - Twitter change this method to respond appropriately to
OAuth calls) use the X-RateLimit-Limit HTTP header to detect the
current rate limit. The good news is that the HTTP header *does*
reflect the new 350 RPH limit :-)

I've also just posted about this here:


So it might be worth keeping an eye out for @raffi's reply.
