Twitter Rolls out the Follow Button

From now on, users no longer need to visit a website's Twitter page in order to follow them. All they have to do is click that Follow Button.

Twitter has begun offering an embeddable button called Follow Button. The Follow Button enables one-click subscription to a Twitter account associated with any website. Before this, a website owner can link their Twitter profile page offsite. However, users have to visit the associated profile in order to follow it. People who are interested in subscribing to updates from a website itself can still do so through RSS feeds.

But Twitter power user, Kevin Marks, said that it would be nice if the Follow Button includes rel=”me” in the code. That will help outside parties to analyze the world wide social graph based on its program. Have you added Twitter’s Follow Button on your site already? What is your opinion about this new social plug-in?
