Now you can link your io9 commenter account to your Twitter account, and make your comments go further.
It's easy to link your Gawker and Twitter accounts, and then whatever comment you write can go out on Twitter as well, with a link back to the comment itself. Here's what you do:
1. Click your name in the upper right hand corner, next to the search box — this will bring you to your commenter profile page.
2. Click "Link Twitter Account" — you'll stop by Twitter.com to authenticate, and then you'll be set!
3. Check the "Tweet this?" box when commenting, and your comment will be automatically tweeted — with a direct link to that thread.
