Add "Twitter Profile" line to user profile page

Add "Twitter Profile" line to user profile page

Short, concise description of the idea
In addition to "ICQ UIN" "Google Talk" "Skype" etc. a line should exist for a persons Twitter profile.

Full description of the idea
Twitter is fast becoming WILDLY popular in the U.S. and EU markets. I'm rather surprised it hasn't been added to user profile pages already. It allows bi-directional SMS communications between "friended" users.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Twitter ( is a common form of "on the fly" communication with many users using LoudTwitter ( to import the short messages into LJ. Allowing more detail will let users connect better with friends and form closer bonds. While LJ does allow posting via SMS, and has the capability to send responses BACK, Twitter works better and is much more popular for SMS communications.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There will need to be a better "This is who I want to see this" in the Contact Info section. Something similar to the dropdown box that is currently used for ALL parts of the Contact Info could and should be available for EACH individual part. This would allow users to choose if everyone can see their ICQ UIN, but would only allow Friends to see their Twitter/Skype information. The top section would still be an excellent way to override all section.
