Hi Tim,

POST actions aren't "rate limited" in the same way as GET actions in the
Twitter API. There are natural, organic (sometimes unpublished) limits to
some write operations.

In this case, you're creating a new message, which isn't something rate
limited on the API level. If you were being prevented from sending
additional direct messages, you would get 403 Forbidden.
