Blackbird Pie Twitter Plugin for Live Writer

by @ 16:48 on May 9, 2010. Filed under Blackbird Pie, Live Writer Plugin

Hot on the heels of the Google Buzz plugin, is a plugin that I wrote for @stevecla that lets you insert a twitter quote from a new service called Blackbird Pie. Basically this service lets you put in a tweet url and get the code to put on your blog/website that shows that tweet, for example:

Twitter Blackbird Pie Plugin for Windows Live Writer than a minute ago via API

The plugin is easy enough to use, just click on Twitter Quote from the Insert menu, which gives you this screen:


Paste your link into the box shown, hit Bake It, then once the tweet has loaded, press insert. Job done.

Now, this service looks to be some guys little pet project from twitter, and not a fully fledged service, which means it could possibly be taken down at a moment’s notice. For this reason, I will not be releasing the plugin on Live Gallery as I would normally, instead, I’ll make it available to download off my own server. There will also be no installer for this, so it’s a manual installation, so just extract the dll to Program Files\Windows Live\Writer\Plugins.

    This Blackbird Pie plug-in is very useful . But how about putting an absolute date and time stamp of the tweet instead of ‘X minutes ago’ . I think that will be better.
