    I am coding my own software right now. I will send tweets with a delay. What is the current maximum tweet right now ? 1000 per 24 hours ?

    You need to read the docs instead of asking it here.

    POST statuses/update has no rate limiting.

    Api or not, technical limits are 1k within a 24 hour period, which is further broken down in to semi hourly levels... meaning you're allowed to tweet 20 times every half hour maximum

    I am not sure, but the docs doesnt specify any per App or per User rate limiting.

    Bit confused. Where did you get the 1000 number from? Just asking.

    how many follow/unfollow? Can I beta test your software ? I am sure I could come up with several features you might not have thought of yet .

    I thought you were talking about account limits... However for rate limiting, you're not limited when it comes to posting updates, its when you start making requests to retrieve data... depending on what it is, you'll either be limited to 15 calls every 15 minutes or 180 calls every 15 minutes...

    More info can be found here...

    Sorry about spaces, it wont let me post full links...

    The 1000 you talk about is for tweets? I cant find any such limits for tweeting. I find limits for searching, but for tweet, I cant find any limits. Can you post the text from the twitter site where you found the limits?

    var_dump the result. They will probably have a JSON response which will tell you the error.

    Ah I remember seeing that. But well, thats so odd. There is no rate limiting giving in the API docs, and says there is no rate limiting at all for tweeting. Well, no idea. :D

    As per the link I posted above, a simple Google search reveals all the limits in the Twitter documentation.
