I've been studying APIs and testing with toy apps; technically, it's

1) OAuth is obviously required for status updates (api.twitter.com/

2) Same as (1), but for stream.twitter.com/filter ?

3) Is it Ok for desktop apps to hold stream.twitter.com connections
open for 20 minutes or so, e.g., during a group discussion?
