Today's WTF comes directly from Twitter and their new Blackbird Pie product.  Seriously are these guys on drugs.  I've outlined why I like Twitter a few times but I swear it is run by incompetent product managers.  They haven't really come out with a new feature in ages and now we get Blackbird Pie.

How clumsy and poorly thought out is this thing?  In order to embed tweets into a website or blog I have to copy the URL of a tweet, post it into Blackbird, generate some HTML code, and then post it into my website.  Are we back in the dark ages?  Why not have me code this in hexadecimal with notepad for crying out loud.  How is this easier than simply copying the text from a tweet and posting it into a website?  Seriously this is like amateur hour.
