I thought it would be cool to share this with Thesis Theme users, especially that we are getting ready for CommentLuv Premium plugin, which will be released for the public next week. The new plugin is a super joint of 8 different plugins, one of them is the TwitterLink plugin.

Note: If you are using one of my Thesis Skins from ThesisAwesome.com, you won’t need this code, I’ve already integrated CommentLuv into the skins and it will automatically indicate the you are a CommentLuv Premium user and do the job for you.
If you would like to add a better code that checks if TwitterLink is enabled/disabled on Thesis Theme, here it is:
