Twitter Follow Button Replaced My Twitter Badge

Twitter released a new one-click subscription button that can be embedded easily on any website.

Before, anyone who wants to link their Twitter account on their website should link to their Twitter profile using gimmicky buttons called Twitter Badges. But users still need to click \”follow\” on your Twitter profile to follow. Today, I replaced my Twitter badge with Follow Button, because it makes following as simple as clicking the Follow Button.

Follow button has the same look and feel of Twitter tweet button so it looks very consistent with the Twitter brand. You can get the follow button here.

One little complain though… I wish Twitter makes it more customizable. For instance some people like the orientation to be vertical or horizontal and size to be small, medium or large. Personally I want a bigger follow button to use better call to action.

Overall, I think this is a very good move from Twitter. And yes, you know what to do. Click the Follow Button.
