Twitter Usage Capped? January 20, 2010

Here’s something that might get the knickers of Twitter fans in a twist.  Rumours are circulating that the social networking site has introduced a cap on usage.  Don’t get too worried though – the limit is 150 requests per hour, according to this screengrab (above.)

BWT does not have a twitter, as our life is not interesting enough to justify multiple updates about it per day.  Do you think the cap will affect you, Twitterers?

As far as I know, rate limiting has always been in effect on Twitter, although the rate has gone up and down over time. This only affects API access, which means accessing Twitter via third party apps such as you get on an iPhone. I don’t believe there’s a rate limit when accessing Twitter via the website, but I might be wrong – I don’t have a huge amount of interest in Twitter as I tend to find it fairly annoying and tiresome, although I think it can have its uses at times.
