Twitter Avatar

Description

Allows a User to enter their Twitter username when posting a comment on your blog and a link to their Twitter page will appear next to their comment. This plugin will also replace the avatar on the comment with their picture on Twitter, both on the front-end and the Admin of the Blog.

Two small changes to your theme’s comments.php file are needed for this plugin to work correctly.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated:- team@inmeres.com
