I have Site Streams implemented for a number of twitter accounts on my testbed system. It is working like a charm, and for this system at least, the home timeline, mentions and messages are all super fast (obviously). It saves API calls, it is nice, I am pretty happy.
I wonder: What other data coming down the wire are most likely to save API calls -- and are thus worth the effort to capture in the local fast database for async processing? Other than tweets (including mentions) and messages (DMs).... thanks, Mark -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
