Today twitter announced public availability of @anywhere which I thought of giving a shot.
Yes it’s easy to setup and works like charm

STEPS:
1. Go to the dev site of twitter anywhere
2. Login using your twitter account & go ahead to create an application
3. All inputs asked are pretty much intuitive
4. Go to you APP detail page & take a not of your API key
5. On your website simply add the code snippet preferably at the end just before


<script src="http://platform.twitter.com/anywhere.js?id=YOUR_API_KEY_HERE&v=1"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
twttr.anywhere(function(twitter) {
twitter.hovercards();
twitter(".post").linkifyUsers();
});
</script>

6. Bang you are done. Now any twitter username on your webpage will be linked to twitter hovercacrd & a mouse over will show the fun
7. If you want to add this on any blog on blogger.com, simply add a “text/html box” under design layout and paste the code snippet in it.
8. To test I have added the same in this blog & now we’ll see a few example with a little shameless plug of my twitter handles 😉
Mouseover these twitter handles to see @anywhere in action
My Twitter handles:
