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

I’m new to twitter so I haven’t figured out how to get this to work yet
but it definitely sounds like I need to get over my lack of techno-know and try and get “publicise” to work.

Will there soon be a (free) way to integrate Facebook status updates into our blogs? Or is there already a way and I just don’t know how to do it?

THANK YOU so much for the links, I used the step by step instructions in the first one and it worked!
(despite my techo-ignorance!)
Steps so clear the even Kiwi-the-idiot-Dutch managed it LOL
I still don’t know much about twitter but I suppose I will now see tomorrow a “tweet” that my blog post has posted, yes?

Took alittle figuring out, but fairly straight forward, I just had to remember to use the HTML and not visual when pasting on, and hey presto an active tweet on your blog. Looks great WordPress,thanks.
