    Are we sure that calls to the twitter API during a backoff period do not 'reset' the clock?
 IE if we make 300 calls in 1 min and need to wait 14 to reach the 15 min boundary, would
an unsuccessful call at 3 minutes result in the window being reset?  
    If not, then this approach should work.
