My aim is to add commenting functionality to my website. The Facebook Comments social plugin does exactly what I need except I need a Twitter version which lets users comment with their Twitter ID instead of their Facebook ID.

Is there a Twitter version of the Facebook Comments social plugin?

    What kind of website do you need to use it on? Is it WordPress, Joomla, something you put together yourself in Dreamweaver, or something else? Oct 1 '14 at 12:31
  • Ah, I see what you mean now. It's a WordPress website but the solution doesn't necessarily have to be a WordPress plugin. Oct 1 '14 at 13:28

So far, I didn't know that Twitter has the API comments like Facebook.

Twitter has third-party application that allow for registered user using them account for register/login on the trusted application/web application. For example, Using Twitter ID for log in the Stackexchange sites. Since I don't know the Twitter API comments service, I would like to give you another API comments suggestion which your audience can use their Twitter ID for commenting in your web apps, blog, and soon. Here's below:

  1. Livefyre

    Livefyre (product name: Community Comments). Livefyre Community Comments replaces your default comments with real-time conversations. Our social integration features make it easy to capture all the conversations going on about your posts across Twitter and Facebook, and pull your friends into the conversation.. (from: Community Comments from Livefyre).

    It's free. Then, there were many features you can get, here's below:

  2. Disqus

    Disqus is a free service that enables great online communities. As the web’s most popular discussion system, Disqus is used by millions of websites that cover pretty much any topic imaginable. Our magic is in connecting people to stuff worth talking about. (from: about Disqus).

There are still plenty of services like that. It's possible, not only developer but also community develop the vanilla of Twitter API for next commenting services.
