things about Twitter that tweak me

Overall, I like Twitter. I like the brief micro-blogging format. I like the ways people are stretching the format, like Thaumatrope's fiction. But there's things I desperately want to fix.

I want it to remember me! Sometimes I log in from the home Mac, sometimes I log in from the laptop. Each time I switch, I have to log back in no matter if I previously clicked "remember me" or not. Such an annoyance.

I want to see more than 20 tweets at once. I follow maybe 60 people but some of them are pretty prolific and in 2 hours more than 100 tweets can easily come up. Please, can't I see 40 or 50 tweets at once?

I want to be able to twitter *from* my phone without twitter forwarding everyone else's tweets *to* my phone. I actually believe this is completely do-able, it's just that I haven't found the magic help page yet. If anyone wants to point me in the right direction, that would be sweet.
