I wanted a quick and simple way to just automatically link to a Twitter userpage or Twitter search whenever I wrote them in a blog post. The other plugins where full featured or only linked to the username in the sidebar or widget. Whenever you put an @username in a post, it will link to the matching twitter user page. Whenever you put a #hashtag in a post, it will link to the matching twitter search page.
