Great job with this Devin; good to see 140kit back in action. But it's 
so frustrating that I can't pull the data out and play with it myself! 
On the other hand I suppose we can't blame Twitter for trying to 
monetize their APIs; they're not a charity after all... ~DEEN

A while back, I was providing a service called 140kit.com, which was a site where a researcher could throw in a term, and tweets including that term would be automatically collected. At that point, you would be able to download the raw data or run our on-site analytics.

Second, our previous hosting situation, which was provided to us for free, finally fell through, and we don't have money (its just me and another programmer) to pour into this thing.
