      Description

      Admin emails from Twitter use a dynamic envelope-from address of the form:

      <11variablehexdigits><list>=<domain>@bounce.twitter.com

      This means that every mail has to be individually moderated.

      One way to fix this is to enhance sender-demunger to replace the variable hex string with a fixed value. A similar approach was taken with Travis emails (see INFRA-18843).

      Note: it looks like all the 11 digit hex strings start with 'b0'.

      There are some other dynamic addresses from twitter which have the form:

      t0<hexdigits>-<hexdigits>-<hexdigits>@bounce.twitter.com

      These appear to be relatively rare; possibly only associated with setting up a Twitter account, so can be ignored for now.
