I clicked over to register and see that eventbrite has still not added native support for twitter names.
The list of attendees looks like this:
Kristin Dziadul, Marketing Analyst, BackupifyOnly the twitter name with the full URL is clickable.
twitter name: kristinedziadul
Tim Street, Vice President , Mobile Video
twitter name: 1timstreet
Andy Fruchter, Head of Business Development, Shaker
twitter name: @andrewfruchter
Chad Smith, Mobile Developer, SHS
twitter name: http://twitter.com/chadsmith
TWITTER NAME NOT STANDARD
When you set up an event with eventbrite, "twitter name" is not a standard field. You need to create a custom field to capture twitter names.

When you add a custom field for twitter name, people will enter either:
- Their twitter nameWhen these names get displayed as seen in the example above, only the twitter name with the full URL is clickable.
- Their Twitter name preceded by an @
- The full URL of their twitter name
If you are an event organizer, add instructions on how to enter twitter name, so people will add the complete URL.
EX: Twitter Name (ex: http://twitter.com/stevegarfield)
NEW FEATURE SUGGESTION
I've suggested to eventbrite that they make 'twitter name' a standard field, allowing registrants to enter their name, and then having the system display it as a clickable link back to their twitter page.
It would also be nice if there was a 'follow' button on the registration list so people could just click to follow anyone they'd like.
Do you agree?
