Hi Worth,

The OAuth endpoints are not rate limited despite the documentation saying it
is. We are aware of the documentation being wrong in this regard and have an
updated version in the queue to go out. The request tokens are short lived.
I don't have the exact lifetime to hand but I would recommend they are used
in the /authorize call within a couple of minutes of being received. The
tokens you get back from /access_token are permanent and will only stop
working if the user removes your application from their account or you
regenerate your keys and don't update the client.

Hope that helps,
