Hello Twitter Web Intents


I have just checked in version 0.5 of the Blackbird Pie WordPress plugin to SVN. About frikkin’ time!

I was planning to include a whole load of new features into this release, but decided to include a couple of bug fixes and, oh yes, Twitter Web Intents!

A big thanks must go out to Justin Shreve from Automattic, who let me reuse his code from the version of the Blackbird Pie plugin. Without him, this release would have taken a lot longer, and I was able to include some of his nice, neat code into the plugin (refer to comments in code to see what was included).

Please visit the official plugin page, or the plugin page on

Download v0.5 now!!

As before, please try it out and let me know if you have any issues.

At this stage, I have a pretty clear picture in my head about what I want to include in the official v1.0 release. Some features include:

  • Ability to choose your preferred tweet layout (or use your own)
  • Shortcode to show most recent tweet from a user
  • Shortcode to group tweets
  • Allow twitter username to be captured in user profile in WP admin
  • Settings for:
    • including rel=”follow” in links
    • turning off web intents (altogether or just in rss)
  • Get Livefyre
  • FAQ

Hi !
I download new Plugin release and I have this error :
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /homez.152/hourrafo/www/wp-content/plugins/twitter-blackbird-pie/blackbird-pie.php on line 17
Impossible to activate the plugin.
What do I have to do ?


i had exactly the same problem [php language="4.4.9"][/php] and can confirm that changing 'private' to 'var' does indeed work. thank you!


Hi Davido
what version of PHP are you running on your server?
I think it might have something to do with the use of the 'private' keyword which is specific to PHP 5.
try change 'private' to 'var' and see if it works.
I will do some testing on my side too
