Respond Via Twitter?

I enable comments on a post-by-post basis on this blog because I don’t tend to get very many comments these days. I’d like to keep some sort of feedback loop going, though. I’d love it if there were a way to replace the comment form with a “respond to this on Twitter” form. Does such a thing exist?

  1. Something here might be helpful… maybe… perhaps. http://webdesignledger.com/tools/15-useful-twitter-plugins-for-wordpress I think the info is old though, so not sure it will be useful to you. There’s this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter-mentions-as-comments/, but I think that is actually just finding others talking about similar things and putting it in your comments on the blog. Surely, there must be a way to do what you are asking though. Seems reasonable, especially with all the technology floating around these days. :O)

  2. Thanks! I’ve seen most of those, but they don’t do exactly what I want them to do. This may be a case of “build it yourself, Cecily!” 🙂

  3. i think livefyre does that, but is not as popular. i tried it on mi hobby silly tumblr dating is boring

  4. That’s good to know. I was sort of hoping to avoid switching commenting systems, though.

    Thanks, Meli!
