Quoting Vijay <vijayaraghura...@gmail.com>:

OK Tom, will queue it and spread it, that should give me more room.

But that still doesn't answer the question - how do the big companies
manage?
Do they have multiple IPs?

The *really* big companies - like Google and Microsoft - just connect to the Streaming API "Firehose" with one IP address, and maybe a backup IP address or two, and index every tweet the Firehose sends them. ;-)
