No self-messages in telegram

I'm using bitlbee-libpurple 3.4.2+20160808+master+51-g88cde4e-git, telegram with telegram-purple, and I don't receive self-messages in groupchats while using same telegram account from another machine. Although, I get my messages using same telegram-libpurple library with pidgin/finch, that's why I think it's a bitlbee bug.

Might be related to the self-messages removing mechanism that can't separate my connection in bitlbee and connection from other places. Any ideas?

Thanks for clarifying!
I see, so it is a libpurple problem.
I guess it would be nice to have an option to enable echo on a protocol, so one can filter his own messages using his client. Looks ugly but solves the problem.
