Glad to hear this was never a discussion. You should've just stated originally that you know exactly what twitter wants, and left it there.

Have you spoken with someone at Twitter about this? I have. If you haven't, there's nothing to discuss.

So you've specifically asked someone in a position to make those decisions at twitter, whether they'd considered taxing their API? and they told you explicitly "No, we want to cap API usage regardless if it can be a profitable channel or not"
