Hi Taylor, We are pulling in tweets into our site for various twitter users and displaying their tweets. The part that confuses me is whether we need to build the API stream that Brian described in his email (Statuses/Filter) or the site_streams API as mentioned by our developers? Also, just to check if we don't build the site_streams one, is this something we're going to have to build anyway at a later stage?
