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- trips? 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 Martin -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
