Yesterday Twitter introduced a one-click ‘follow’ button – see examples to the right sidebar of this blog post.
The idea of the button is that you can allow people who are signed into twitter to follow you with one click, from your website, blog or other web page. A very useful tool as it associates the useful content you’re sharing directly with the call to action to follow you on twitter for more.
Twitter has produced a simple page to create your own follow buttons.
The page generates HTML text that you can paste onto your website code, blog sidebar or posts etc. It is also possible to edit the text to create follow buttons for any user, which might be useful if you are compiling a list of tweeters to follow.
Here are some of my accounts:
How could you use the ‘follow’ button? Have you got one on your website yet?
