About Me is a plugin for WordPress that creates a new widget to display your user profile and latest tweets. Let your visitors and users know who is behind your site or give a quick explanation about what your site is and what it can do for your users. Use it as an author box to show your credentials and connections to the world. Check the last widget at the right sidebar in the site pointed by the Live Preview link.
