I guess to be more specific, will we still be able to use the Streaming API with basic auth after June 30th if there is no oAuth implementation for it?

Eventually the Streaming API will be all oAuth as well, but on a
different, yet to be determined, schedule.

User Streams will launch with oAuth. The preview will switch over to oAuth soon.

Raffi, does the discontinuation of basic authorization on the API also
effect the Streaming API or just the REST API?

hi all.
you're going to be hearing a lot from me over the next 9 weeks.  our plan is
to turn off basic authorization on the API by june 30, 2010 -- developers
will have to switch over to OAuth by that time.  between now and then, there
will be a lot of information coming along with tips on how to use OAuth
Echo, xAuth, etc.  we really want to make this transition as easy as we can
for everybody.
as always, please feel free to reach out to this group, or to @twitterapi
directly.  if you need help remembering the date -
