How are the Identities supposed to work in Account Settings? I am looking at Twitter and Facebook specifically. If I copy and paste a link in to those fields, it shortens it to just my account name on those platforms.

Example; I enter https://www.facebook.com/Jeremy
Shortened to just "Jeremy" after clicking Save.

When I view my profile, "Jeremy" is not clickable in any way to direct users to Twitter or Facebook. I don't really know about the others since I don't plan to use AIM (actually discontinued in 2017) and Yahoo Messenger is also defunct.

If someone is viewing my Profile/About section, shouldn't the Twitter and Facebook contact details somehow be links that are able to direct them to Facebook or Twitter accounts for them to contact me through those platforms?

My real TwitterName has an @ in front of it, but that field won't allow non alphanumeric characters.

Yeah, that is what I was finding too. I was expecting the identities to be somewhat clickable, but they aren't. I guess they are just expecting people to copy paste and search on Twitter or Facebook.
