TweetiePrefs is a free OS X preference pane that allows you to customize your Tweetie filter list.

Tired of spammy retweets and obnoxious promotions? Now you can easily filter them from your stream without having to get your hands dirty on the command line.

Any terms added to your filter list will be applied to your timeline, mentions, searches, etc. Unfortunately, there is currently no way to filter a specific user, as this is not supported by Tweetie.
