Greg, All users can access the streaming API at default access levels. Roles can give elevated access through the same URLs -- more statuses, more keywords, etc.
"Gardenhose" access is additional access on the /1/statuses/ sample.format resource. You should use the track keyword on the /1/statuses/filter.format resource. If the default access level is insufficient, we can discuss upgrading your access to restricted track. Most apps can run fine without elevated access. You should not use /gardenhose.format resource. It works via backward compatibility mode and will go away shortly. -John Kalucki http://twitter.com/jkalucki Services, Twitter Inc.
