Turn Twitter Names into Hyperlinks in WordPress


When I wrote my #FollowFriday post I had a ton of Twitter user names that I was too lazy to link. Fortunately, @larsreineke created Twitter Name Replacer, a WordPress Plugin. According to his site, “In every post it replaces @sometwitterusername with @sometwitterusername It recognizes mail addresses and skips them. If you precede the username with an exclamation mark like this “!@sometwitterusername”, the username will be skipped.”  Thanks to Twitter Name Replacer, I didn’t have to do anything but add the usernames with an @. The plugin did the rest.

So, if you are a person that likes to include Twitter user names with their links in their WordPress blog posts, have a look at Twitter Name Replacer, it’s excellent.
