Lots of people are making money via Twitter. Some sell their applications, others post ads directly on Twitter, others use Twitter content on their sites and include ads there; there are many different possible business models. As long as you stay within our terms of service - which, of course, may be updated at our discretion, so stay current - you should be fine.
We do actively police spam and abusive behavior. Some people's conception of legitimate business, it turns out, is everyone else's conception of unsolicited and aggressive marketing. Don't do that.
