Hi

I was under the impression that screen_names are unique but I came
across two different users having the same screen_name:

http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.xml?user_id=110332760
http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.xml?user_id=122406923

The screen_name is Y_H_B and when we access the User Show method by
screen name (http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.xml?
screen_name=Y_H_B) or go to their twitter page (http://twitter.com/
Y_H_B) then we are looking at the user with id = 110332760

Does anyone know if this is a bug or a known issue? What happens with
the "ghost" user 122406923? Is it a valid user? They don't seem to
have a twitter page since the Y_H_B screen_name is used by someone
else.

Thanks
Georgios
