Answer/Steps

  • Visiconn limits the number of requests to 5 or 6 times an hour.  After this, it will reject any more request.
  • This is a setting set on Twitter servers.
  • We recommend setting the "Update Every" field in Visiconn to no less that 10 minutes.
  • If it is set shorter, it may poll data quicker however after the limit is hit, all further requests will be denied by Twitter for that hour.
