Handle handling not consistent in twitter commands

If there is the same handle for buddys in different accounts Bitlbee renames the one last added. In my case I have the same buddy via ICQ and twitter, in ICQ as USER, in twitter as USER_.

Using ICQ is no problem. Replying on twitter via "reply USER_ foobar baz" gets "<@root> User `USER_' does not exist or didn't post any statuses recently" while "reply USER foobar baz" works.

The handle-translation should - in my opinion - work both ways.

I think this is a twitter specific issue, other protocols seem to work fine for me.

So unless you have more examples of inconsistency, I'd change this ticket to be about the twitter reply command (which is kinda annoying, yes)

I don't know if its twitter-only, if you say it is feel free to change it.
