    I see that others have had a similar problem, however I am unsure how to resolve it. I love Blackbird Pie, as I think it adds a lot to my blog...however, I can't seem to figure out how to get it to work....I've been using blackbird for months, but I believe it stopped working when I updated wordpress.

    I'd appreciate any advice you could offer on how to resolve the issue.

    Thank you!!

    I'm using WP 3.3.1 and this is my first install, it also doesn' work and get same error.
    Also I don't understand how to setup, just copy twitter link into shortcode? that easy, no other tweaks needed, for sure?

    I just installed the latest version in a fresh install of WP 3.3.1, activated it, added a tweet to a page and could view it fine. It gave no errors, so I am not sure why it is giving you the "There was a problem connecting to Twitter" error.

    add a new page, and type this shortcode in:

    [blackbirdpie id="20"]

    publish the page and view it. You should see a blackbird pie of the tweet
