I've had a white listed Twitter account for about eight or nine months
now. About two months about both the white listing on my service
@tweetcepts and a smaller service @twit411 both simultaneously stopped
working. I'm told by Twitter that both white listings are still
active. I made no changes to my server nor the IP addresses related to
the white listings. I also have not been notified of any ban or
violation that would result in the loss of a white listing, nor have
any requests been made to adjust my applications and so on and so

Both accounts properly print out that they're rate limited at 150 API
calls per hour, and I can watch those counts drop in real time as
users deplete them. I've tested the API about a zillion ways to make
sure it's nothing on my server causing the problem. I'm able to
successfully use every normal aspect of the API, and it all works
right at the 150 rate limit I'm currently seeing. Prior to the
magically disappearing white listing I was using about 10,000 API
calls per hour on each account (at the time that was out of an
available 20,000).

I've been trying for two months to get someone at Twitter to help me
figure out what's going on. I've been building web apps since 1995,
I've built about 40 or 50 web businesses in that time. I'm almost 100%
certain the issue is not on my end.

Any other developers out there have any input on the matter or
