There is no symbol, just via.
I guess you aren't following any tweetie users, then you would have  
seen it.

I still think having a separate feed is a cool idea..
It allows you to follow what your following likes and it would free up  
the timeline for some of the RTs. (the RTs are essentially only a  
liking/favourting the tweet)
