Trying Twitter Blackbird Pie

Yesterday Twitter released a tool that creates an embeddable version of individual ‘tweets’ so they can more easily be used for quotes in blogs etc – it is rather oddly called Blackbird Pie. Using Twitter quotes in blogposts is more and more common and I’ve been known to do it myself on the odd occasion. However I’m never convinced these standard embed options will work with the restrictions of the platform so potentially this might just go pearshaped..

** Update – as expected it didn’t work – just spat out a load of jumbled code and then a muddled, style free version of my ‘tweet’ at the bottom. Oh well – I guess someone will come up with a fix soon enough **
