'TypingPrivacy' Keeps Your Recipient From Seeing When You're Typing an iMessage
Apple's iMessage is nice… but sometimes it just takes things too far. One such example is how it shows everyone when you’re typing a message. Seriously, Apple… where’s the privacy there?!
A new jailbreak tweak called TypingPrivacy by iOS developer joedj now allows you to enable and disable the ellipsis bubble that appears for the recipient when you’re typing a message through iMessage, as shown above.
The tweak only comes with one option to configure. When you go into your Messages preference pane (the tweak doesn’t add a preference pane of its own, instead integrates into the Messages preference pane), you will find a new option called “Send Typing Notifications.” When you enable it, the recipient of your iMessage can see when you're typing. When you disable it, the recipient of your iMessage won't be able to see when you're typing:
The tweak only works on the device(s) that you have installed the tweak on, so if you go to another iOS device that you have your iMessage account set up on that doesn't have TypingPrivacy installed on it, and you type from that device, the ellipsis will still show. So, you’ll want to install this tweak on all of your jailbroken iOS devices that you send iMessages from.
It's a great tweak for privacy, since a lot of us hate being snooped on. If you want to grab TypingPrivacy, it's available in Cydia right now!

This is retarded. You can disable that from the settings app without the tweak.

I find the feature very nicely implemented onto iMessages. Don't see how it's such an invasion of privacy lol

No you can't

a) they are also using iMessage
b) you are typing a message...to THEM.
So if they are going to receive a message from you in a few seconds, what does it matter if they see you are typing? Furthermore, if you aren't actively engaged in a text conversation, why the hell would someone even be looking to see if you are typing a message to them at all?

"Seriously, Apple… where’s the privacy there?!"
What the actual funk?! You're sending a reply to a text, you want the person to read it because you're writing it. That's the precise opposite of privacy!!! Yet you, seemingly seriously, object the fact that if they're looking at your conversation in the messages app as you're writing a reply that they can see that you're actively typing?!?! Funk me, that's one of the most pathetic things I've ever heard. I'm eager hear your justification for this delusional statement…

I don't think you can, unless you know something that we don't. I checked the settings and found absolutely nothing

There was never an option to remove the bubble that pops up as you type to begin with... -.(\
