Social media sharing service Buffer has added an intelligent auto-complete feature for Twitter usernames that converts handles to names when posting to other social networking services.

The new feature works across Buffer’s Web app, browser extensions and iPhone and Android apps. Since most users are sharing to other services as well as Twitter, Buffer will automatically change the @mention to a full name.
