WordPress Twitter Mentions as Comments Plugin

Twitter Mentions as Comments plugin by benbalter scours Twitter for people talking about your blog posts and silently inserts their Tweets alongside your existing comments. The plugin leverages the power of WordPress’s built-in commenting system – notification, comment moderation, author white/black listing – making Twitter an extension of your blog.

Searches for Tweets linking to your blog posts, regardless of the URL shortener used (using the free BackTweets API)
Pushes Tweets into WordPress’s existing comment workflow – notifications, comment moderation, and author whitelists/blacklists work just like any other comment
Fetches user’s real name and profile picture from the Twitter API and links directly to the original Tweet
Checks automatically – no need to do a thing
Option to automatically exclude ReTweets
Smart Caching of Tweets and user data – retrieves only what it needs to save on API calls and server load
