With less than encouraging responses with regard to whitelisting, firehoses and limits on search rates from the twitter development group, it becomes increasingly clear that a cloud computing approach is required for avoiding ip-address rate limits on Twitter search.
The obvious potential of Twitter search in terms of data is such a big resource base makes it very significant. My query for twitter dev here is that, If a solution is designed for a single application to work in a cloud-based-framework(i.e Multiple ip addresses) , can a guarantee be provided that twitter will not block the app in future ? If traffic becomes fairly high. We here ebelieve that Twitter is a big resource for data. We would like to utilise it and provide better services. Hoping to get a positive response to my query which does not seem to violate any guidelines as of now.
