Commentary from Marco on What happens when a Twitter client hits the token limit. Remembering a while back when Twitter seemed to go thermonuclear on client apps, but left a lot of questions about what exactly “work with us” would actually mean.
The real rule, if Twitter was honest and direct, is simple: “We don’t permit anyone to exceed the limit unless we feel like it.” But even then, it would be stupid for anyone to build a business on Twitter with such unstable footing. And if your plan is to stay under the 100,000-token limit, you’d be a fool to believe in the safety and longevity of that exemption.
I wonder what happens when a higher visibility client like TweetBot hits the limit? I’m going to guess the same thing.
