Rate Limit Question (TwitchAlerts dev)

Hi there, I’m the developer of TwitchAlerts and I wanted to get some info on how rate limiting works. While I haven’t hit any limits yet, TwitchAlerts is growing quickly and I want to make sure that I don’t run into any issues in the future. Is there a way to get an elevated token, or how do you guys decide what is “too much”? I don’t see any hard numbers anywhere, so any information is super helpful.

I really love the API, and the documentation makes it easy to get things done!



Currently there are no hard rate limits, hence the inability to find out how close you are to hitting them. Instead we monitor how much load each application puts on our system, and contact devs as their usage grows too high.
