Hi guys, It is a bit over an year since I've been running a small volume Twitter based app deployed on Google App Engine.
Basically this app is using the search API to poll some results. According to the app stats it is making less than 100 request/hour. But since last weekend, it seems it is continuously getting a rate limitation error and even if I backdown this doesn't change. Unfortunately, switching to the streamapi is not possible as Google App Engine does not allow long lived responses. So, my questions is: 1. how should I proceed? 2. is there any way I could whitelist this little app so it doesn't get rate limited? (nb: I am aware that the search API doesn't have an official whitelisting process) 3. considering I'm running on Google App Engine, I cannot provide an IP, but I could definitely make sure to submit some whitelisted headers (or something in this area). While little, this app is quite essential for me. Please advise how should I proceed.
