Sign In With Twitter

The era of distributed profiles is upon us. I've been offering commenting via Facebook Connect for the past couple months (via the disqus comment system that our firm is an investor in).

Although I have not done a serious analysis of the numbers, I think about 20-30% of all comments come from people using their Facebook profile to log in and comment on this blog. That makes total sense; why create a new profile on disqus when you already have a Facebook profile?

Yesterday, Disqus launched a second option for "remote profiles" with their implementation of "sign in with twitter".

Here's how it looks on the Mashable blog:

The nice thing is Twitter sign in uses their OAuth service and is very simple and easy to use. Check it out and let me know what you think (you need to be logged out of disqus to see the Twitter and Facebook options).
