Unclear direction for Facebook & Twitter links in profile

Quite simply, I'd like there to be a bit of info text that tells the user what type of link is expected for the likes of Facebook and Twitter in the user's profile.

This became an issue when I had entered a full link like http://twitter.com/wordpress, which worked on my main theme, but on my sub-site running FaultPress from WooThemes, it was assumed that these links were mere usernames, i.e. just 'wordpress', and the preceding twitter URL would be added, creating a broken link due to duplication.

Maybe WooThemes went against standards, but it was unclear to me if they were because nowhere on the profile page does it way what it actually expects.

There are no Facebook or Twitter links in core. Those are most likely added by a plugin or theme.
