How to add twitter follow button in wordpress

Twitter is nice place to announce breaking news in a short and concise manner. If you are a blogger and you want your visitors to follow you on twitter, I will show you how to add twitter follow button to your wordpress blog.

First, you need to go to twitter resources link to get the follow button code. Choose follow button and you will see your button preview and code at right hand side. Copy the code. Don’t forget to change your user name in case you didn’t login at the time you’re doing this.

Then go to your wordpress dashbord. Under Appearance, you can see Widgets. That’s where you can add your follow button. Drag and drop the Text Widget to the sidebar. In the text widget, paste the code and click save. It’s as simple as it is. If you already have tweet button, you can remove the script. Only need to add link just below.

<a href="" class="twitter-follow-button">Follow @htetwaeyan</a>

There you go.  Go to your blog. You will see the twitter follow button at the side bar.
