Twitter Handle to Text

Sometimes on Twitter you want to type a word that starts with @ without mentioning the handle.

To do so you can add a zero-width space between @ and the handle but doing it manually is cumbersome.

That's why I created a boomarklet that simplifies this process. Drag the link below to your Bookmarks Bar, click it and type a handle.
