Hey all. Thanks for bearing with us over the last few days since the V2 release as we tune our archiving algorithms and fix some of the bugs that surfaced.
With regards to the backlog, we are making progress. We are down to 1.4M records in Twitter Stream backlog, but have implemented a few more archiving nodes which should help cut further into this backlog.
However, you may not even notice a difference in your notebook because we also periodically fill in the blanks from the Search API, and well, that is running a little more efficiently right now.
Finally, SPAM. We are starting to get a good deal of spam that we are manually attacking and will implement some controls / automated routines shortly to better police this.
Thanks again for all your support!
