For use cases in which one is liveblogging regularly recurring events or multi-session/multi-day events, it may be useful to be able to separately clear the logs and clear the speakers (i.e.: a button for each function instead of one that does both). This way one can cut and paste the log, clear it out for the next session/day/other while not needing to re-enter all the speaker data back into the system redundantly - particularly when one may need to look up all the data again.

While the Twitter look-up is useful as a stopgap toward re-populating , the data return doesn't always do the best job as some Twitter bios don't use full names and may or may not include websites, or when users (Tantek for example) have an emoji as their "name" Noterlive doesn't allow modifying (and re-saving) corrected versions of the name (though the workaround for this appears to be to save the speaker, delete the the speaker, modify the text and then resave.)

Mostly these type of fit & finish ideas are meant to serve livetweeters who don't necessarily have lists/data on speakers pre-entered prior to an event and are forced to do the searching on-the-fly during which they are missing potential content.
