Twitter has launched a Follow button, enabling users to subscribe to the Twitter feeds of companies and individuals directly from their websites with a single click.

Previously, website publishers had to redirect users to their respective accounts on before users could opt to follow them. The new feature will likely encourage publishers to increase the number of “follow us” prompts on their sites, because they won’t have to risk redirecting their audiences off-site.

Users will still be able to preview profiles before opting to follow them by clicking the username next to the Follow button.

Those who are interested in adding the button to their own sites can set one up here.

Twitter To “Suggest” Friends for You

Published by pratyushkp on August 2nd, 2010 - in Social, Technology

Twitter has launched a new feature Friday called “Suggestions for You” which directs users to other Twitter accounts they may find interesting.

Twitter will now help you find friends with similar interests, thanks to its new search engine called “Suggestions for You” which looks at several factors and then determines who on Twitter may share your interests.

The accounts recommended to users will be chosen depending on a number of factors including who the user is, and who the user already following, and who they follow, so it should provide some interesting new people to converse with you may of otherwise never known about.

If users like a suggestion they can click “follow” and visit their profile page, otherwise if you don’t want that recommendation, click “hide” and Twitter will not show that option again.
