Twitter Finally Launches Follow Button
Twitter has unveiled a new feature that allows website owners to add a ‘Follow’ button to their site – allowing users to Follow them on Twitter without leaving the webpage or being redirected to Twitter.
Similar to the Facebook Like button, I am surprised it has taken Twitter so long to finally get around to implementing this.
You can create your Follow Buttons here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/followbutton
You are given several options like:
– the button on a white or dark background
– showing your follow count or not
If a user is already logged into Twitter and presses the Follow button, they are instantly following you. If the user is not signed in they will get a prompt to sign-in.
I have added one in the sidebar –> Please follow me! 🙂
