Twitter quota

ok. Again the 403 quota failure.

 

Wondering about if it is an still-not-well-running API or  if we couid do something with the twitter query that we are using into the flow.

 

Ideas?

Re: Twitter quota

Hi,

 

Can you please add some more detail about your flow, Which operartion you are trying to use?

Twitter has very agresive rate limit for some of the operations. You might be using some low rate limit and operation and getting into this issue.

Re: Twitter quota

Excellent info about rate limits. 

 

I'm running the same action with IFTTT without problems but interested to do the same with Flow.

 

I need some ideas about how to deal with these limits via actions/connections.

 

Ideas?

 

regards

Re: Twitter quota

Sorry for the issue you are facing. Could you please share the flow id for your flow. When you open the flow, the browser url would look like - https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/flows/f64ed9c6-5541-440a-a6e1-7bae7ab2f6e7
The Highlighted part is the flow id.

 

I will pull up the information about your flow and would be able to help you further.

Re: Twitter quota

Question is, Twitter quota affects all of the queries of a same account or evaluates each query individually?

 

... Or is related with some issue with the twitter API?

Re: Twitter quota

Hi,

You are hitting the throttling limit from our system. We have deliberately kept lower throttling limits for twitter connector.
Twitter throttling limits are per user account (not per query). Since users can use the same twitter account in multiple connection so we had to keep lower throttling limits from what twitter enforces.

Re: Twitter quota

Though if you are running just 1 flow with a twitter connection it shouln't throttle. By any chance are you running more than 1 flows using the same twitter connection?

Re: Twitter quota

Yes, I'm running more that one flow using the twitter connection. 

 

I wonder about a workaround at least. Interested in run flows as IFTTT recipes where (at least until now) there are not throttling restrictions. 

 

Or to mimic the IFTTT recipes behavior, the one-flow-only-to-twitter isnt solution in my case.

 

thnks
