With a Rate Limit of 350 hits/hour, checking my Home feed once every 60 seconds should be more than easily afforded.
However, I'm finding that one Query uses about 4-8 hits. Why is this?
Usually I'm not hitting the limit, but now that I'm trying to grab user info for users mentioned in tweets it's maxing my Rate Limit very quickly.
Two questions: How can I lower the amount of hits per query to get my Home statuses without decreasing the interval? Is there a way I can grab user info (ProfileImageUrl, FollowersCount, etc) for users mentioned in tweets (Not the tweet author/retweeter/etc)
without making more queries?
This is the Query I'm using to grab my Home feed that's causing 4-8 hits per.
var twitterCtx = new TwitterContext(auth);
home_tweets = from tweet in twitterCtx.Status
where tweet.Type == StatusType.Home
