I don't think that's entirely true. If the keyword goes above a certain frequency then it will get rate limited (for example we have an open stream for "http" to get links and only see about 20% of the overall links). We're seeing about 50 tweets / second so I would imagine you'll be less than that in which case you should be fine.
