shortening reach

Trying to shorten the reach on my recently acquired bike to match my main ride. Looks like I need a 90mm stem and a short reach 70mm handlebar.
Will these shorter components negatively effect the handling?

It'll feel twitchy. Less hand movement required to provoke the same reaction from the bike.
