Real-world results Soup.io says they are realizing from using Gnip
Soup.io is using Gnip to provide data integration to Twitter, and they have seen a reduction in the latency for their Twitter integration (i.e. the time elapsed for a tweet to show up in the Soup.io service) since moving to Gnip. Now Soup.io users should see their Twitter notices show up within a minute of them being sent on the Twitter service. Since Gnip also provides data streams from many other providers as well (Flickr, Delicious, etc) Soup.io is working to use Gnip as the way to access and integrate to these services in the future.
