WebClient [1] + SqueakSSL [2] does it quite nicely:

| wc |
wc := WebClient new.
resp := wc httpGet: 'https://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/sample.json'.
resp isSuccess ifFalse:[^self error: 'Request failed'].

"Process incoming data"
stream := resp contentStream.
["Could also set the stream to be non-signaling, but perhaps we want
to keep track of timeouts at some point"
[stream waitForData] on: ConnectionTimedOut do:[:ignore].
stream isDataAvailable ifTrue:[
	"Transcript out the next chunk of data"
	Transcript show: resp nextChunk.
]] repeat.
