Check the forward section in Privoxy's configuration file
(open http://config.privoxy.org/show-status to get its
location) and add: 

forward         twiki    .

below Tor's socks4(a) line. If this fails, either specify
the IP address or add an entry in your system's hosts file.

You could also use a proxy exception in Firefox
(see M's answer), but it would be browser dependent
and circumvent your whole proxy chain, not only Tor.
