Adding a Twitter Follow button to your landing page

A Follow button can be added to your landing page to define someone to follow (typically your brand). This feature makes it easier for visitors to follow your brand on Twitter. The follower count can also be displayed next to the Follow button.

In order to add a Follow button, the Twitter Widgets app must be installed by a customer administrator.

To add a Follow button to a landing page:

  1. Open or create a landing page in which you want to embed a tweet.

  2. Click Cloud Content to open the Cloud Content menu, which lists all available content services.

  3. Locate the Twitter Follow service, either by scrolling through the list or searching with the search box.

  4. Drag the Twitter Follow service onto the asset, and place it where you want it to appear.

  5. Double-click the element to open the configuration screen:

    4. Follow Button Size: Select the size of the Follow button: medium or large.

      Tip: Button width varies depending on whether there is a follower count displayed. Below are the heights and widths of medium and large Follow buttons in pixels:

    5. Click Save. When it is finished saving, you see a green Success! bar.
