Rate limits for Twitter tweet imports


Twitter imposes rate limits on how many tweets can be accessed per day. Twitter controls the limits associated with any Twitter account.

DiscoverText onlys use the "search" endpoint:


and specifically the standard search API:


which is rate limited as:

  • Requests / 15-min window (user auth)           180
  • Requests / 15-min window (app auth)            450

All of DiscoverText's requests use the "user auth" (as they are tied to a user's account - hence, the need for the user to authorize their Twitter account to use DiscoverText).

With a DiscoverText enterprise subscription you can store up to 500,000 tweets or other data units. There is no use case review by Twitter as long as you are not doing government work (which is governed by different rules).
