I appreciate the feedback but the issue is that our clients send DM's to their customers and the customer base could and has grown beyond 250 users. We have whitelisted the clients that needed increased rate limits so we are ok for now but this could effect how we deal with future clients. There has been a lot of activity from this group and it's been hard to keep track of all of the information but I did read that you can still request increased DM rate limits which is all we need but I don't know if this has been confirmed by someone from twitter.
