Auto Twitter Handle

Q: Why? Why are you doing this!?

A: Because I’ve been practicing PHP and this is a neat little tweak.

Q: Who would use this?

A: Harrison Ford would. Sean Connery would. You should too.

Q: Can’t I do this through my `functions.php` file?

A: Of course you can, but this is better – it will always be in effect, no matter the theme. Plus, you can simply flip it on and off through the Plugin menu!
