  1. Bring back the Streaming APIs

    Streaming was a VERY good+easy way to get low key sampling data, without digging into heavy duty "last x million tweets" data dumps. A couple of lines of code (ie minimum wasted researcher time) and you could start collecting/analysing data.

    It is very much missed.

    Not to mention, of course, the damage removing streaming has done to the general Twitter ecosystem: http://apps-of-a-feather.com/
