Hi there 150 requests per hour is the limit for Basic Authentication-based requests, with OAuth-authenticated requests allowed further requests. Normally it's 350 (and is due to be raised to 1,500 per hour at some stage), however given the extra load Twitter's under during the World Cup OAuth requests are limited to 175 requests per hour (so, a 50% reduction).
If you want to get the higher request rate, you'll need to use OAuth to authenticate users - though I'd note that you'll likely see a fair amount of latency and timeline issues with the OAuth home_timeline method as that's seen the brunt of the extra World Cup API load in my experience over the last week or so. Twitter has all the documentation you need at: http://dev.twitter.com and there's likely a library to help with the OAuth stuff (definitely for PHP, Objective-C) should you need it.
