How do we connect our Twitter names to our usernames?

You can't connect them, so to speak, but if you have spare characters you could include it in the tweet or it's probably just easier to PM Allysan and let her know which entry belongs to you.

How do we connect our Twitter names to our usernames?

I'm not sure that there is a way other than to just include it in your entry. If you don't have space you can PM me your entry, as long as you've tagged @WritingForums in your original post on twitter. Which, by the way I'm not sure if you have because I don't see your entry :)
