a1The 43,200 limit (not 432,000) applies only to the Pro tier of the Pro API, and you can get up to that limit using the Twitter API with app auth. As you can see in the Twitter docs (, that allows up to 450 requests/15 min. With user auth, you are correct that you can only get up to 17,280 requests/day. The Botometer Pro documentation ( explains this: "As compared to the Free API, this Pro API provides a paid tier with significantly higher rate limits: 43,200 requests per day for the pro tier, and 17,280 per day for the basic tier. These rate limit tiers reflect Twitter Search API's user-authenticated and app-authenticated rate limits, respectively." Using more Twitter accounts to get around the limits is a violation of Twitter terms, so we recommend against it.
