First you need to have the Advanced Menu activated - if you can't see it, press ctrl + Alt + D
You should then see something like "Debug Settings Option" or "Debug Settings" in this Advanced Menue (this could be a little dufferent in different viewers - some older e.g. have the Debug Settings it under "Client", if remember correctly). The debug settings are a long list of parameters that can be set - look for PlayTypingAnim and set it to FALSE - that's it

Addition to what Luc said: Since some server fix over a year ago, AOs don't need to have typing animation enabled anymore to detect if an avatar is typing. And second: For the third-party viewer Firestorm made a feature that disables those annoying head tilts, shouting animations and whispering animations when you press enter.

Click Edit/Preferences (or Ctrl+P) to open Preferences. In the chat tab, uncheck Play typing animation when chatting. Personally, unless I'm in a photo shoot or something like that, I like to use a typing animation replacement like my Blackberry.
Edit: Changed File to Edit.

Keep in mind that it often is useful for others to be able to see that you are typing something.
It is possible to get a different typing animation to use in stead of the default one. At least some AO's let you specify which typing anim to use, if not all of them.
