New Twitter Pages, ColdFusion function for Twitter

Added 3 new Twitter pages on the site -

Users' Twitters - follow all the players here at fourdown who have entered their Twitter username into their profile. Want your feed displayed on this page? Click the profile button in the top-right of the site and enter your username! (you don't have to give us your password, don't worry)

Wrestlers' Twitters - follow all the verified wrestler Twitter feeds on one easy page. Know any other wrestlers on Twitter? Let us know!

And the best one..

Chris Jericho vs The Miz - follow the battle between Chris Jericho and The Miz on Twitter and see what other people on Twitter are saying about the feud!

I've also updated all Twitter feeds displayed across the site so links are automatically made hyperlinks, and the special Twitter items - using @ to direct your message to someone and # to talk about a topic - now link either to the user or to the topic!

Here's the ColdFusion function I wrote to parse the Twitter-specific items -

<cffunction name="twitterParse" access="public" output="yes" returntype="string">
<cfargument name="input" required="Yes" type="string">

<cfset inputReturn = REReplaceNoCase(input, '(^|\s)@(\w+)', '\1@<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="\2">\2</a>', 'ALL') />
<cfset inputReturn = REReplaceNoCase(inputReturn, '(^|\s)##(\w+)', '\1##<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="\2">\2</a>', 'ALL') />

<cfreturn inputReturn>
