UPDATE : check out the new Blackbird Pie plugin page
WOW, the Twitter Blackbird Pie WordPress plugin had an interesting past couple of days! On Friday 5th November, the guys from WordPress.com took the plugin & modified it a bit, and then added it to all WordPress.com sites! The story also got featured on Mashable & Techcrunch, 2 of THE LARGEST tech blogs on the internet, where they linked back to our original plugin. That was just awesome news, and the plugin downloads doubled in about 3 days!
With the increase in users, some issues were found. The biggest probably being that the New Twitter status URL formats did not work with the plugin, so people were happily pasting their tweet URLs into the post editor and nothing was showing up on their live sites. The new Twitter URLs contain an extra “#!” e.g. http://twitter.com/#!/MarcForrest/status/4259838024482817
I have just uploaded a new version of the plugin to overcome this issue. Version 0.3.4 is available from WordPress.org for download, so please upgrade or download to the latest version. Other changes include renaming the Autolink.php file to autolinker.php and adding a donate button into the tinyMCE popup.
Again, if you like the plugin and feel that it deserves some kudos then please donate me some beer money
