[FEATURE REQUEST] Twitter name in profile

It would be nice to have a place in the profile to put our Twitter username an make it appear the same way MSN, YIM, etc. are.

Why?

You can edit your signature and make your own links, right?

Because I think it should appear next to the others ways of communicating with people

I think Chiva is kind of right with this. However this request has a low priority in our list while we fix our next big release. We keep it in mind though, since we should modify a couple of things in the identification servers as well as on the forum templates to make everything fit. And since we should be adding twitter, we should as well add facebook, don't you think?

I thought about that, but Facebook is much more personal than twitter and people (including myself) would be more reluctant to link to it in public, may be a poll with ways of communicating with people to add to the profile in a following update would be the best to avoid waisting your developing time.

Thanks David

chiva: ...but Facebook is much more personal than twitter...

I agree. Facebook is too unsafe, and it is personal for keeping in touch with your own close group of people. Well, for most of us anyway.

This hype over the linking everybody with everything and everywhere should be limited. Many of us don't want share our dark secrets with the rest of the world, facebook don't really let us choose, and it changes its policies everyday. Dangerous and irritating.

Twitter is something I don't even use, I just had a similar feelings about it, but I don't have an actual opinion about it.

Just want to keep reasonableness with this matter of contacting people.

Cheers, Kari
