I appreciate the feedback but the issue is that our clients send DM's to their 
customers and the customer base could and has grown beyond 250 users. We have 
whitelisted the clients that needed increased rate limits so we are ok for now 
but this could effect how we deal with future clients.  There has been a lot of 
activity from this group and it's been hard to keep track of all of the 
information but I did read that you can still request increased DM rate limits 
which is all we need but I don't know if this has been confirmed by someone 
from twitter.
