[GitHub Bug #1093] Twitter connect uses dummy email screen_name@foo.com!!!

[GitHub Bug #1093]

screen_name's may possibly be duplicated, possibly if user deletes their account and evil friend then impersonates them.

Also not being a real email it messes up notifications, preferences, etc.

You can't get email from twitter credentials. Possible solution is to store twitter ids in a col, get email if needed, compare.

grep is your friend.
