IP whitelisting in twitter (the joy of full tunnel VPN)

I've been running into the same aggressive ratelimiting with a twitter wall  
we run for events - despite logging in with our own API access, two hits to  
the twitter search API within 30 seconds seem to get ratelimited - I have  
to wait about 5 minutes after that second connection to make sure I don't

I'm finding I have to make sure the search term is correct first time, and  
the "firehose" of real-time tweets doesn't update like I remember in the  

Perhaps this is a continuation of Twitter removing API functionality to  
prevent developers writing alternative Twitter clients?
