The minimum Gnip charge is $500 per month, with a minimum of a year
contract, if you want to use Gnip in a production application.

And that's before the -- still unknown -- additional access charges
for the Twitter feeds.

You can't use Gnip in a production application if you are not an
incorporated business, so that excludes access for many developers,
even if they can afford the charges.

Maybe there's a secondary market here, for an incorporated business to
provide access for one-man developers to Gnip data for a fee. Meaning,
Reseller Inc subscribes to Gnip and gets the data feeds, and resells
them to one-man developers. I haven't checked Gnip's TOS to see if
that's expressly prohibited.
