Any ideas on how the new Twitter API rules will affect researchers working with TwapperKeeper, DiscoverText, etc?
Twitter has not yet specified how many API calls will be available per call type. For example, if I want to make a *followers_ids* call, it is unclear how many times I can do this within an hour. For researchers using a regular API key, the limit used to be 350 (?) or 150 (?). The rate limit after the changes might be going down.
So for researchers who need to make the same API call over and over again (get graph info, get user info, etc...) this might get much more challenging.
