Want to add a button on your website or webpage such that when the user clicks on that button it will take the user to your Twitter page so that they can follow you on Twitter?

The easy way is to just use the code that is provided by the Twitter at

You will have to login Twitter so that it can customize that code for your Twitter profile. It will give you the HTML code for various sizes of Twitter buttons.  You can even have the buttons say “Follow me on Twitter” or “Follow us on Twitter”.  Just copy and paste the code onto your webpage.  No need to download that image, because the code already contains the link to the image.

If you want a text link to your Twitter page, use HTML code similar to …

<a href="">Follow me on Twitter</a>

where you replace YourTwitterUsername with your own Twitter username.
