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.

Not really, as that flag needs to be implemented on the plugin side, and due to the way messages are routed internally with libtgl it's hard for the plugin to tell which messages to flag that way.
