Turning these two tables into entities would result in the following benefits:

* Fieldable entities, which make these two easy to be extended.
* Better views integration so a View of type Rendered Entity can be built in order to list Tweets along with other entity types (such as nodes).
* Better caching.
* Display control at the User Interface.

Finally started working on this. So far I have created a new branch 7.x-6.x where I have defined the twitter_status and twiter_account entitites and the account listings are now using entity functions.

Updated core twitter module so it uses entity CRUD functions. Needs testing.

Submodules have not been updated yet.

Exciting! I've been thinking about how utilizing entities could allow better integration for Twitterfield and Twitterstream modules.

It would be helpful to update the issue summary with what's accomplished & yet to be done to communicate where contributions could be made.
