Twitter: Blocked people appear in mentions

When you blocked someone on Twitter and they mention you, then the mention still appears in bitlbee (and even trigger a notification). This shouldn't happen and doesn't happen in other 3rd-party-clients. People get blocked for a reason.

BitlBee simply shows what it gets from the streaming API. This stream is rather raw and unfiltered. You can use /ignore instead.

I'd close this bug but maybe someone will feel like updating BitlBee to fetch the blocklist and drop Tweets coming from blocked users.
