Adding a Follow button to your website

What is the Follow button?

The Follow button, shown above, allows users to follow your account directly from your personal homepage or any website where the button is installed. When users click this button, the following occurs:

  • For logged in users, a small pop-up screen displays with more information about your account when they click the button.
  • User who aren't logged in to Twitter will see a similar pop-up screen that allows them to view your account's following/follower information, sign in, and then follow you.

Note: If you’re looking for our basic buttons, you can still find them here!

How to add the Follow button to your site:

  1. Log in to your Twitter account.
  2. Go to
  3. Customize the Follow button to your liking with the available options.
  4. Copy and paste the code into the HTML of your website wherever you would like the button to appear. (At this time, the Follow button cannot be added to Facebook profiles.)
Note: Your Twitter profile already has a Follow button to help users follow you, but you will not see the option to follow your account when you view your own profile (because you can't follow yourself).
