While the twitter plugin may be a third-party plugin and the Pidgin  
developers do not support third-party plugins, configuring per-user  
sound notifications is pretty much squarely outside of a protocol  
plugin's functionality.

That said, this isn't possible in Pidgin itself. The third-party Smart  
Ear plugin may help (although I don't know if it has the ability to do  
per-*account* configuration.) See the ThirdPartyPlugins page on  
Pidgin's wiki for information on it.
