Twitter confusion between tweets with ID 0xEE and the @EE account

I follow @EE on Twitter, and they've @replied to me a few times. I just went to RT a completely unrelated tweet that had the hexadecimal ID of "ee", so I typed rt ee and was surprised to find that Bitlbee had just RT'd a month-old tweet by the @EE account instead of the minutes-old tweet that I had intended to target.

I'm not sure what the best resolution for this ambiguity would be, but I couldn't find anything about it in the wiki or on Google - e.g. a way of specifying that I meant 0xEE rather than @EE!

In fact there is a way already. Admittedly it's not very well-documented, but you can prefix a tweet id with # and it'll always be interpreted as a message ID.
