Limit Rates..

January 27, 2010

MAJOR SETBACK! Twitter has decided to limit REST API requests to 150 an hour which has had a huge impact on my project. Initially, the QC composition requested the XML page as soon as the last XML page was loaded.. due to internet connection speeds this was roughly 1-2 per second. As a result I have implemented an LFO patch which delays the request of a new XML page load to once every 20 seconds.

Ideally I would of preferred to have the data as live as possible to keep the flow going. However it should be ok as it is.. more to follow!
