Hi, I am building a web application using sign-in with twitter and upon signed in I am showing user's friends & followers. It's not another twitpic like service but in the vertical market (CRM space).
Since sign-in process api calls are authenticated hence will be charged to the respective user (I am ok here) But *the real problem is rate-limiting on the the friends/followers list* because "GET statuses/friends" ( http://dev.twitter.com/doc/get/statuses/friends) calls do not requires authentication and calls are deducted from the calling hosts IP address allowance (my website) which are permitted 150 requests per hour which my website will reach in few minutes. Earlier I could have asked for the *white-listing* from twitter but it's not offered anymore. This features (friends/followers list) is very very important features on my website and without this my website will be toothless. Hence I'm very very frustrated. Can somebody help me how do resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.
