Will Twitter Have To Ban Script-Users Like Digg?

With its first revenue stream now up-and-cash-generating, Twitter is going to have to police its platform a little tighter to ensure maximum revenue (that’s what a business does, right?)

What happens then if the ads they sell do not appear on users’ profiles? Lower revenues, that sounds obvious. With the scripts I use, The Twitter ads do not appear, as the sidebar gets re-formatted by the script:

But they do appear if I turn Greasemonkey off:

So if scripts start to dig a hole in Twitter’s revenue, will they start to ban users who use those? Should we expect a Twitter’s purge now that the service is mainstream and getting into serious business?
