Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It would be nice if the posts tweeted by the various Twitter accounts Stack Exchange's sites have would @-reference the author of the post. Give us some love.

To know the twitter @username, our SE profile should have an extra field for that, but that is a feature that has already been mentioned.

But how would it know the name of our Twitter accounts? (If we have one, to start with.) – Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 14:31
(Like:!/arjan is not me!) – Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 14:37
I think it has already been discussed in meta, giving the option of adding the twitter account on your profile. As simple as that. All the rest is bot magic. – Naoise Golden Dec 17 '11 at 14:44
So the message would @-reference all the users with an account on the site containing the question, wouldn't it? – kiamlaluno Dec 17 '11 at 14:51
@kiamlaluno it should @-reference the user who posted the question/answer that is being tweeted. – Naoise Golden Dec 17 '11 at 14:58
@Naoise, note the "edit" link then! – Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 15:07
@Arjan I don't understand your last comment. – Naoise Golden Dec 17 '11 at 16:25
It seems @kiamlaluno and I did not understand what exactly you're asking for, or were trying to trigger you into being more specific. Rather than answering using comments, please enhance the question for future readers! (Use the "edit" link to do so.) Thanks! – Arjan Dec 17 '11 at 16:29
I actually thought that this feature request was about tweeted questions that should @-reference all the users who answered that question. – kiamlaluno Dec 17 '11 at 16:42
I really think it is unambiguous, can't see how to reformat the question but will try. – Naoise Golden Dec 17 '11 at 16:42
Twitter integration on SE, more generally speaking, would be pretty sweet though. – Ben Brocka Dec 17 '11 at 16:47
note how some tweets say "great answer", instead of posting the question. So some times it is the author of the answer (not the post) who deserves the love – Naoise Golden Dec 17 '11 at 16:50
