    Scenario:
    You're writing a tweet. You want to reference a friend, but you can't remember their twitter username because it's something stupid like schmid7y (sorry mate, had to pick on you )

    Solution:
    Edit your auto-correct dictionary! Now, all you need to type is @sch and it will autocorrect to @schmid7y - perfect

    Add your twitter names to the autocorrect dictionary using this example format:

    @err|@errade
    @wor|@webosroundup
    @mech|@Mechanical_Mind
    @dieter|@backlon

    etc. etc.

    Result:
    Autocomplete that works in any twitter client - sorted

    That's an awesome idea, will be giving this a try. Thanks for the tip. You should make the link to your thread more visible though, people might miss it.

    Love this idea! Was just thinking today that I couldn't remember someone's entire twitter username. Some of them are quite interesting.

    If anyone wants to follow me on there, my username is easy, it's the same as it is here. Just let me know, so I return the follow, because I don't automatically follow everyone back, but will if I know you're from the boards here.
