I imported my twitter stream into WP:


but all the entries now have "barrycarter:" at the beginning.

I realize I could just re-import w/ different settings, but I want a more general solution.

Is there a plugin/etc that lets me do "s/barrycarter://isg" on selected (or all) posts? In other words, mass-edit, but not by hand.

I realize I could use the API for something like this, but would prefer an existing plugin/etc if there is one.

I use the Search and Replace plugin for such tasks.

No hands on experience with such, but replace tag of official plugin repository seems to list some plugins that fit your description.
