Hi Ed,

Some quick answers to a few specific points below:

With authentication, whitelisting works at the junction of a user and an
application. @znmeb using Twitter for iPhone has 350 requests per hour.
@znmeb using YoruFukurou has 350 requests per hour. Using one user request
in Twitter for iPhone does not effect the user quota for YoruFukurou.

Site Streams is nearing availability for general use -- there are a few more
t's to cross and i's to dot. In fact, HootSuite is currently a Site Streams
beta consumer.
