Stores Twitter username together with comments and replaces gravatar with twitter avatar.
Twitter avatar reloaded Plugin adds a new field to the comment form to get the user's Twitter username and stores it together with comments and using it replaces gravatar with twitter avatar when the comment is displayed.
This Plugin works seamlessly and you don't need to edit your theme files to add the new field to the comment form. It automatically adds it when activated.
Note: Because of the changes in the way Twitter API works, from v2.0 of the plugin you need to create a twitter app and provide the access key and token. Refer to the installation instructions to find out how to do this
