Dear Sir/ Madam, I have several questions about the whitelisting, hope you can provide information.
Question 1) >From the link "http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Rate-limiting", it mentioned "IP whitelisting takes precedence to account rate limits. GET requests from a whitelisted IP address made on a user's behalf will be deducted from the whitelisted IP's limit, not the users. Therefore, IP-based whitelisting is a best practice for applications that request many users' data." So if we whitelist our IP and call api (authenticated or unauthenticated), through that ip, then all the rate limit by IP will be exhausted very soon. And when the rate limit by IP is used up, the mechanism starts to use rate limit by user, but unauthenticated api will not allowed to use this rate limit by user, and hence fail. So under this situation, it is best to call authenticated and unauthenticated through 2 different IPs? Question 2) Also, "Each whitelisted entity, whether an account or IP address, is allowed 20000 requests per hour. This means that two authenticated users using the same IP address would each get 20000 requests per hour. " The limit of "account" is per application account basis, or per user basis?
