Rate Limit Depends on User Account/IP

Feb 26, 2013 at 10:23 AM
We use linqtotwitter for querying twitter status continously in background.because of which frequently twitter sends us rate limit exceeded error.
To deal with it, we are thinking about querying available rate limit and switching user accounts to make new queries if current account is close to its full quota?
because of which, i was wondering does twitter also monito IP from which queries are made, or is it strictly username and account?
any help would be great

Twitter v1.1 rate limits are based on user. LINQ to Twitter supports streams, which might be a way to improve your rate limit situation.
