Hi there,

I am busy writing an aggregator and I am looking at using the Twitter
API to get URL counts.

I seems that "public" developers are not allowed to use the URL
counting API based on the Tweet Button FAQ. Which leaves me with not
other option but to use the search API for URL counting. Using the
search API makes not sense if there a Count API.

This leaves me with the following questions
1. Will my application / I.P. get banned if I use the Count API?
2. Is there a way to request multiple URLs at once to limit round-
3. The URL count API returns not threshold information. So if I am
allowed to use it, should I manage the thresholds myself

FAQ - http://dev.twitter.com/pages/tweet_button_faq#count-api
URL Count API - http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json?url=URL
Search API - http://search.twitter.com/search.format

My application aggregates URLs on a central server using a shared
account so the request numbers may be quite high
