kill file feature similar to newsreaders for twitter

There are usually a few tweets by given users that I want to ignore without unfollowing the user, it would be very useful to be able to ignore tweets based on substring patterns or regexp, either for a given user or for all users.

The same could be useful for highlighting certain tweets.

This could be either implemented on the service itself (webpage and api) or it could be implemented in the 3rd party applications, e.g. Tweetdeck

I have proposed this on getsatisfaction/twitter and on

let's how this turns out

Agreed. Twitter needs more filtration options in general.

Right now hashtags are an extremely limited concept as well, since I can't track, e.g., JUST intersections/combinations of hashtags. It would be nice to be able to say that I want to see tweets that contain #toronto AND #weather, but not just one or the other.
