1) Mark can comment on oAuth. It's soon, but we've some static in the pipeline that needs to get grounded out before oAuth can go out.
2) Continue to use stream.twitter.com for service to service integrations. User Streams clusters, currently chirpstream.twitter.com and for a little while betastream.twitter.com, are already tuned for user consumption and thus already have much lower track and loc, limits, cannot do follow, etc. User streams clusters are likely to also have a different delivery latency distributions (wider), login latency distributions (skewed much longer and much wider) and overall uptime (lower at first). We haven't decided if we're going to dedup connections between cluster types yet. A very small number of test accounts per developer: don't worry about it. -John On Mon, May 3, 2010 at 11:38 AM, M.
