Twitter API v2 has a Tweet consumption cap that limits the number of Tweets that you can receive from a set of endpoints on a monthly basis. Tweet caps apply at the Project-level, meaning that any requests to the endpoints listed below using the keys and tokens from developer Apps within that Project will count towards the Project Tweet cap.
Limited v2 endpoints
Tweets you receive from any of the following endpoints count towards this monthly Tweet cap:
- Recent search
- Full-archive search (only available with Academic Research access)
- Filtered stream
- User Tweet timeline
- User mention timeline
- Likes lookup - Tweets liked by a user
Tweet cap volumes
The Tweet cap volume depends on your access level:
|Essential access||500k Tweets per month|
|Elevated access||2 million Tweets per month|
|Elevated+ access||More details coming soon. Sign up for our waitlist|
|Academic Research access||10 million Tweets per month|
You can check your usage towards the monthly Tweet cap by viewing the main dashboard page in the developer portal. Under the name of your Project, you'll see a status bar that illustrates your current month’s usage in relation to the Tweet cap. You will also see the number of Tweets you pulled this month, the percentage of Tweets used in relation to the cap, and the date your Tweet cap usage resets.
