Site Streams, a new feature on the Streaming API, is now available for
beta testing. Site Streams allows services, such as web sites or
mobile push services, to receive real-time updates for a large number
of users without any of the hassles of managing REST API rate limits.
The initial version delivers events created by, or directed to, users
that have shared their OAuth token with your application.

Via Site Streams, the following events are streamed immediately and
without rate limits: Direct Messages, Mentions, Follows, Favorites,
Tweets, Retweets, Profile changes, and List changes. A subsequent
version is planned that will optionally deliver each user's home

For additional information on Site Streams and details on how to apply
for access, see the Site Streams Beta documentation at
