"Looks like twitter is blocking twitterspy with their new whitelist limits. It's hard to do fewer than 30 requests per hour per active user."
I've an idea that may be workable for this. Nagios has neat feature that allows different instances to post data back to a Nagios instance in a spoke and hub fashion.
Have many distributed instances of TwitterSpy all 'sampling' Twitters data for different sets of users to stay within the 20k rate limit and then post the data back to the hub, all over XMPP of course. Maybe using pub/sub, the hub subscribing to the distributed nodes.
Or maybe I need to cut back on the coffee :)
