[HOT] Micromappers feeding into OSM

Hi Patrick,

Since we would not be displaying tweets but would be integrating them into
the OSM database that is where the issue is.

I believe this is the part of the guidelines that makes that an issue:

4. You will not attempt or encourage others to:

   1. sell, rent, lease, sublicense, redistribute, or syndicate access to
   the Twitter API or Twitter Content to any third party without prior written
   approval from Twitter.
      - If you provide downloadable datasets of Twitter Content or an API
      that returns Twitter Content, you may only return IDs (including
tweet IDs
      and user IDs).
      - You may provide spreadsheet or PDF files or other export
      functionality via non­-programmatic means, such as using a "save as"
      button, for up to 100,000 public Tweets and/or User Objects per user per
      day. Exporting Twitter Content to a datastore as a service or other cloud
      based service, however, is not permitted.

Thanks,

-Kate
