Twitter launches thrilling new ‘Follow’ button

In what’s already being described as perhaps the most important website button to be launched this week – and it’s only Thursday – Twitter has announced that you, yes you Mr Website Owner of Gloucestershire, can now recruit Twitter followers by installing a ‘Follow’ button on your website.

Before the Follow button or BFB as the cool people would say (if they had a microgram of wit), you could encourage your website visitors to follow you on Twitter but only with a link to your Twitter account - so you’d divert them away from your website = big bummer.

Now you can get more followers for your Twitter account from your website or blog but when they click the ‘Follow’ button, get this, THEY WON’T LEAVE YOUR WEBSITE!

Keeping your visitors on your site is obviously good. That’s where you enthrall them with stuff about your superlative products and services. Now, instead of diverting your prospects from your lovingly crafted sales funnels (you have got a lovingly crafted sales funnel, haven’t you - of course you have. What kind of klutz would put up a website and say ‘welcome to our website and er, have a look around’ – that would be crazy!), you can keep them on track and avoid any possible fall in conversion rate.

So a big fat Epicado welcome to this week’s most important internet button and well done Twits or whatever the Twats at Twitter call themselves.

And here’s a picture of Jennifer Lopez trying to look  sexy against the sultriness that is the Twitter ‘Follow’ button.


Google  rumoured to be launching another internet button! Our chief reporter is on the case and will report back forthwith forsooth.


No, not for the appalling language but for the absence of our own Twitter ‘Follow’ button. How should we die?
