Twitter's filtered streaming endpoints

Please note:

We launched a new version of the POST statuses/filter endpoint as part of Twitter API v2: Early Access. If you are currently using the standard v1.1 version of these endpoints, you can use our migration materials to start working with the newer endpoint.
