Format /users according to spec #4

The specification on twtxt and the documentation here states that the first fields in the result from /users should be in twtxt's mention syntax. Currently it's the users url. I actually prefer the current format as the nicks are already listed in the third field, but in that case documentation and spec should be changed.

I would definitely prefer that nick and URL be delivered is seperate fields, rather than merged into the mention format. If I need it, I can always combine the two as @<nick URL>.

And the other api endpoints also return nick and url in a single field. It would be really nice to seperate them into their own fields. The mention syntax makes sense in a tweet text but here it makes the fields imho just harder to parse.

I will see that I can change the spec for users. @buckket what do you think?

Yes, separating seems like the way to go! There is no need to make things more complicated. 👍
