Did you just propose NNTP for Tweets?
I hope we don't go reinventing the wheel. How many developers here were even alive in 1986? ;-)

After we lost a few days of gardenhose, I'm wondering whether it would be OK for us gardenhosers to back up each other. In case we do research, for instance -- as we do at Dartmouth. I suggest the following: say you lost a day or a few within the range since you were authorized, and are a member of our garden variety cooperative. You ask me to fill you in, and tell me the day you started gathering the hose. I pick a day for which you have data, and ask you to verify a few tweets somehow -- e.g. tell me which tweet ids there are for a certain user id. Would it be OK to self-organize like that, and who'd be our buddy?
