Hey Chris, 1) Is the IP you're using shared? For example, what was the value of "X-RateLimit-Remaining" _before_ starting the test? If you're concerned with Rate Limiting, you should really consider authenticating your calls.
2) Looks like you're not using your library correctly for search. Try: $search = $twitterObj->get_search(array('q' => 'whatever')); Arnaud / @rno On Fri, Mar 25, 2011 at 12:24 PM, Chris S. <thedomin...@gmail.com> wrote: > I am in the process of getting re-acquainted with the API after a lot > of changes and I have run into some issues. > > I am getting rate limited when I do a call to get the follower IDs.
