While I think that this is generally not a bad idea, I'd still expect
that the data has not the average positional quality OSM usually has.
Martijn van Exel gave a talk at Wherecamp-EU in Berlin about the same
topic (twitter to osm) and in the following discussion the consensus
was towards a intermediate layer where those tweets would be stored,
so that you can do reasonable verification at home with the comfort of
a map and probably some nice aerial fotos in the background to
validate the "raw" data.

I also stumbled upon the first tagging examples on your page:
Italian pizzeria
amenity=cafe name=Pizza Ololo cuisine=italian #osmit

Is this really consensus to tag a pizzeria as cafe? There is also
restaurant and fast_food in the amenity value-set.
