Social Commenting System (2 posts)

    I have searched the forum on this, and while I am sure others have requested it, could not find anything on it.

    It is time for the WordPress commenting system to integrate with the social web.

    Here is how:

    1. Allow people who leave comments to post their comment to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.
    2. Let people reply to comments by email.

    I know other commenting systems are available for this, but most of them are buggy, unreliable, rely on javascript, do not store the comments within the WP database, etc, etc.

    I see Google is coming out with a system soon, but I am sure their system will ignore Facebook and Twitter.

    I highly doubt such a system would be integrated with WP core. This would be plugin territory. I know there are some plugins out there that have this functionality.

    I think that one possibly has (some) functionality of that sort

    While it is a desireable feature to a lot of folks, it doesn't seem like the sort of thing that would be included within WordPress proper, for a variety of reasons.
