Hi LoVenus, There's no way to accomplish this directly from the Twitter REST API at this time -- it would be possible to accomplish this for a single user using User Streams but you would have to capture the entire streamed sequence of the originating tweet and each subsequent reply, which all would be streamed. Handling this at scale for multiple users would require Site Streams which is still in beta. Handling this ad-hoc for any given user is difficult. There are some third party services that provide some conversation thread mapping.
Finally, there's also the GET related_results/show method lightly documented here: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk/browse_thread/thread/cdc34ae78a2350b8-- this method potentially can return replies for a certain status, but you can't rely on it to do so as a reply is just one kind of related result that could be returned. If you use this method, be aware that it's not supported as well as other hardened v1 API methods.
