Last November we launched Twitter Blackbird Pie, a quick and easy way to reproduce beautiful, full-fledged tweets — not just static screenshots of tweets — in your posts, pages, and even comments.
Today we are happy to announce that we’ve made it even easier for you to interact with tweets on WordPress.com. Thanks to the new set of tools that Twitter just announced, you can now reply to, retweet, or favorite content without ever leaving the page you’re on.
Try it out on the tweet below!
This improvement takes effect immediately for all tweets on WordPress.com, so there’s no action necessary on your part. Enjoy!
Bonus Tip: Drive Traffic to Your Twitter Account
To gain additional exposure on Twitter, add your account as a verified external service in your public profile under Users -> My Profile in your dashboard. Anytime someone replies to, retweets, or favorites one of your tweets on WordPress.com, they’ll be prompted to follow you on Twitter.
Additional Ways to Integrate Twitter with WordPress.com
- Display your latest tweets in your blog’s sidebar using the Twitter Widget
- Add a Twitter sharing button to the bottom of your posts or pages with the Sharing feature
- Tweet new blog posts automatically to your Twitter account with Publicize
