How I personally handle this issue (And I haven’t hit an API limitation using just Tweetdeck)
Is go in and modify the API values to look like this:
As you can see, the major difference is the “All Friends” has been increased from 1min to 1min 12s.
That minor difference alone is easily enough to make up for the API limits on an hourly basis.
If you continue to run out of API calls in an hour, increase that number to 2 minutes or beyond.
While you’re at it, upgrade to Tweetdeck 0.21 Beta released: Christmas Eve!
