Twitter has been a on a roll since SXSW announcing @Anywhere, then hosting their first conference Chrip. Today’ Twitter/ @twittermedia released a new tool called “Blackbird Pie”. What’s the purpose behind Blackbird Pie? Accouding to the @twittermedia blog,  Tweets are the new quotes. and after listening to the community they wanted an easier way for users to embed Tweets.

Via Twitter’s Fresh-baked tweets for your posts blog post:

The origin of the script is both self- and user-centered. Mostly, we just think it’s a pain to take screen grabs of tweets. But of course we also think it’s a much better user experience to have @-mentions, hashtags and the account itself all linked and clickable.

So how does Blackbird Pie work? To give it a try just go to: http://media.twitter.com/blackbird-pie/ , then enter the url of a tweet, for example, url http://twitter.com/tzmartin/statuses/13373536266 then Blackbird will “bake” some code for you to embed on your website or blog post, in Twitter words.  Here’s the output of the http://twitter.com/tzmartin/statuses/13373536266 tweet using BlackBird Pie.
