Hey developers,

Today we're launching the Follow Button! Similar to the Tweet Button,
it's a new widget that lets users easily follow a Twitter account from
any web page. The Follow Button has a single click follow experience,
simple implementation model, and is configurable to fit the needs of
your website.

Read our announcement on the Twitter blog, and use the resources below
to set up your own Follow Button:

- Create a Follow Button here: http://twitter.com/about/resources/followbutton
- Detailed documentation: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/follow_button

We’ve also added a Javascript layer to our Buttons and Web Intents
that makes it possible for you to detect how users are interacting
with these tools, and to hook them up to your own web analytics. More
details on: http://dev.twitter.com/pages/intents-events

We're excited to see how you guys will implement the Follow Button.
Let us know what you think, or if you have any questions.

Arnaud / @rno
