Turn that Twitter bird into blackbird pie

UPDATE: JANUARY 2012 - Blackbird Pie has been discontinued. To embed a tweet, check out this video tutorial: http://youtu.be/SojBeZO6cD4

No, this isn't a post on cooking; it's about the wonderful new Twitter feature, Blackbird Pie. If you blog, this is a real time saver, if you don't, well, it's still good to know about the tools that are available to you on the web.

Prior to Blackbird Pie, if you wanted to include an image of a tweet, you had to do a screen grab and then clean it up in Photoshop (here's an example from an earlier post I wrote on Adam Lambert complaining about his fans). Now, however, all you need to do is paste the tweet's url into Blackbird Pie and, voila, it spits out code you can just drop into your HTML. You can even click on the links in the image!


Easy schmeezy, huh? Feel free to enjoy your Blackbird Pie with a cup of tea and let me know how it goes down, eh?

  1. ANOTHER great find~!!! And I am SO honored and grateful that you used my image as an example!

    Beyond that, this is an incredibly useful app that I will be using all the time! One of the biggest time wasters for me has been revving up PhotoShop to clean up pictures of tweets only to place them on my blog. I have done several stories that are tweet intensive.
    Thank you, Amber!

  15. Thank you Amber for pointing out this useful tool. I have been planning a story that includes may Twitter examples and this will save me a lot of time and aggravation. I saw your post on LinkedIn's Social Media for Nonprofit Organizations.
