Is there a way to filter Twitter feeds so that I do not see the @replies of a given user?

For example, I [generally] do not want to see the "@reply thanks"-type messages from companies to followers.

@Ciaran - thanks for the link, though those are programmatic solutions rather than settings inside Twitter or a Twitter viewer :-\ ..which is what I'm looking for here if possible :) – warren Apr 20 '11 at 14:07

Interesting, I don't think you can see those replies in your timeline unless you follow both users unless they precede @ with a next character. You may want to check @support

".@twitter the whale is huge"

The above is just an update with a mention as opposed to a reply.

You can use a userscript such as Tweetfilter and choose filter all replies.
