I am considering using DataSift in a social media application (think something like TweetDeck, but for a specific target audience).

What I need to do is let the user configure specific keywords of interest (via my application's UI) and then programatically create streams that I can then listen on.

Is it possible to create and edit streams via the REST API?

Yes - you can compile streams using our REST API. Take a look at our REST API documentation page, and have a play with the API through our Developer Console.
