So, I love your plugin. I installed it on Pretty Shiny Sparkly and for the first time EVER since attempting to integrate social APIs with wordpress…it worked seamlessly. No problems. Other than a minor dumb woofoo theme issue which I fixed with your code fix about
echo get_avatar( $comment, '60' );
Here’s what I love about it: it doesn’t force user creations. I love that people can simply leave a comment, that’s it, and be on their merry way. No filling up my database with one-off commenters. No issues with security.
But what I would REALLY love is if you could duplicate this same entire concept, except with the Twitter API. I tried out TwitConnect with depressing results. Fine enough to set up, but once I realized it was creating users on my blog, I immediately deleted it.
Can you PLEASE look into making a “Simple-Twitter-Connect”? Using oAuth (I easily made my blog a Twitter application and thus have my own api and secret keys) for login credentials without creating a new user, grabbing their twitter avatar, and offering them the ability to tweet their comment after commenting on an entry…
these would be wonderful. Please let me know what you think (yea or nay) so I know whether or not to get my hopes up.
