WordPress Blackbird Pie: Embed Tweets in WordPress Pages, Posts, and Comments

WordPress and Twitter have become more cleanly integrated with WordPress Blackbird Pie. This feature of WordPress allows users to embed tweets into pages, posts, and comments with a very simple 4-step process:

  1. Find the tweet you wish to embed.
  2. Click on the timestamp for that tweet.
  3. Copy the URL for that individual tweet.
  4. Paste the URL on a line by itself in the editor of your WordPress page, post, or comment.
