    3.3.4 should do the trick. Just select “no” as option for Twitter’s profile and provide key that belongs to your theme Twitter field

    I think almost! I did as instructed but it doesn’t seem to be pulling the information (or maybe it isn’t formatted correctly?).

    Here’s my database information–

    umeta_id 613
    user_id 5
    meta_key twitter
    meta_value http://twitter.com/tonymerevick

    However, when I run the validator, I get this–

    twitter:creator
    @
    Unknown screen name

    And the output is this–

    <meta name=”twitter:creator” content=”@”>

    I’m guessing the problem is that the theme is declaring the entire url and not just the username?

    Hi, that’s why I wrote some warning in the plugin option, in the plugin documentation and in the plugin changelog :

    However be careful, the value associated with the key MUST BE A USERNAME not a url

    So replace with tonymerevick instead of http://twitter.com/tonymerevick.

    If the theme does not allow you to do this you’ll probably need to add my plugin field (select yes in option page).

    mark it as resolved because now you can switch to your own Twitter field
