You may have noticed some blogs (TechCrunch, Mashable, etc.) are now embedding tweets directly into their posts. By embedding Twitter posts, rather than inserting screenshots or copying and pasting text, the links become clickable, the text becomes searchable and the user’s custom profile styles are added to the embed. Most importantly, it looks cool.
The feature is called Blackbird Pie. It was published by Twitter Media (@twittermedia on Twitter). They provide, “Knowledge and tools to help you use Twitter to transform TV, entertainment, sports and journalism.” Twitter Media has published a variety of Twitter guidelines, metrics tools and API resources. Their blog is a great source for new features and Twitter news.
