    Very cool, Harsh – thanks! I like to follow my regular commentators on Twitter and sometimes their Twitter ID is not the name of their blog so I have to go to their blog and search for it. This will save time and hopefully the commenters might also follow each other if they find someone new in the crowd who looks interesting.

    Could you let me know what problem you are facing? Have you Installed and activated the plugin?
    Copy the exact code in your custom functions.php file. Let me know if you face any problem now.

    Have you seen any advantages of using this? Maybe a raise in followers on Twitter or more comments than usual?

    Stefan it works two ways.
    1. Reader might love to add his Twitter profile and making his Twitter profile more powerful by giving chance for others to connect with him on Twitter.
    2. It helps me to connect with my commentator on Twitter. I might not add evrey one, but once in a while when I see a regular reader and who is commenting all the time, I love to see his tweets on my Twitter time line.

    Makes sense. I tried to follow most of my visitors through Twitter but just after passing 50 I found out how difficult it was to read everything. Now I simply skim it through twice a day and tries to read the personal messages instead of all the links.

    This custom code is for Thesis wordpress theme, though you can also use the same plugin for non thesis blog also. Though you need to look into support or installation guide for adding it to Non Thesis blog.
