How-To: Quote Tweet with Clickable Links

 

If you would like to quote a tweet in your blog post, what do you do? Manually copy-and-paste the tweet? A screenshot? Next time, try Blackbird Pie.

Blackbird Pie: quote twitter tweet

Blackbird Pie allows you to paste a tweet URL and generate the code to display the particular tweet in a nice format with clickable links (profile, permalink, mention, url..)

Here is the live sample generated from Blackbird Pie’s code:


RT @lohhw3: Yahoo! Messenger – Now Available on Android! http://yhoo.it/bdWgo0less than a minute ago via Tweetie for Mac

The result looks good and it has flexible width to fit into your web design. However, the code is very very long.. (as you seen in the screenshot above). By the way, shorter code is already in their To-Do list.
