Please read the blog post at http://themergency.com/twitter-blackbrid-pie-wordpress-plugin-03/ for more info and see a demo of the plugin in action at http://themergency.com/twitter-blackbird-pie-wordpress-plugin-demo/.


TinyMCE editor button to easily search and embed a tweet
Support for the built-in embeds API (oEmbed), so a tweet URL on it’s own line will be converted to a “pie”
Supports non-english tweets & names!
Exact same look and feel as the respective Twitter profile.
Allows for multiple “pies” in a single post.
Stores the generated HTML in a custom field (if possible), so the Twitter API is only called the first time.
The Custom fields used to store the tweet are hidden
Slightly better styling than the original Blackbird Pie
Better use of the Twitter profile background image and color and tiling.
Uses the Twitter profile text color.
Uses the Twitter profile link color.
Dates are displayed like on Twitter i.e. “real time” datetime of when the tweet was tweeted. (see changelog)
Auto-linking of URLs, hashtags, usernames within the tweet text.
Use either the id or full URL of the tweet.
