hide lame stuff on twitter.com
$().ready(function() {
$("<style type='text/css'>.trends-inner{ display: none }</style>").appendTo("head");
$("<style type='text/css'>p.promo{ display: none }</style>").appendTo("head");
});

to be clear, this eliminates the "trending topics" section, and the little ad links for the iPhone and iPad Twitter clients

Cool, will give this a try! Any reason why you had to take this approach rather than $('.trends-inner').hide() though? (I know Twitter's rendering process is a Bit Complicated™)

sry re delay. iirc using hide() just resulted in the call to hide() occuring before the elements satisfying the query even existed. I think I actually fiddled with LiveQuery unsuccessfully for a while before I threw my hands up and just went with the CSS hack.

Ah, good point. I encountered similar issues with the "old" Twitter client when doing some work like this. Good call.
