What plug-ins there are available to allow people to leave comments using their Facebook and Twitter logins? Any special considerations or recommendations?

I am currently allowing comments with the email addresses (default setup), but there are certain problems in this approach (spam being one).

Both Simple Facebook Connect and Simple Twitter Connect have features to allow users to post comments using their Facebook or Twitter credentials. Among other things.

Disclaimer: I wrote 'em both.

why Simple Twitter Connect is not in the repository? –  vajrasar Jan 21 '13 at 10:26
It ceased to work properly when Twitter made changes to their API. I have not had time to fix it, so I removed it until I could find the time to do so. –  Otto Jan 21 '13 at 17:52

Disqus is a popular cross-site comment system which allows logging in via various methods, including Twitter, Facebook and your own disqus account. They obviously have their own Wordpress plugin you should check out.

I'd still like to host comments on the site itself. Disqus advanced API options are very pricey. –  Mikko Ohtamaa Sep 7 '11 at 12:58

Try Facebook Comments This is the best plugin for facebook comments and For twitter comments.

Hope Both are very helpful.
