Twitter Follow Button on WordPress

In any blog worth its salt is advisable to display a button ” Follow me on Twitter ” which is visible in the sidebar. Depending on the platform you use management blogs there are several ways to do this , for example, there are WordPress plugins that handle this task automatically. However, Twitter itself gives us an option to insert HTML as text widget in any sidebar. I use WordPress for many reasons, and how to insert is as follows ( in other platforms is very similar):

To get your custom button ” Follow me on Twitter ” follow these steps:

1. Access to this link to generate the HTML code for your button.

2. Select the type of button ” Follow “.

4. Copy the HTML code that is generated . Look at the preview of how it will look .

5. Access your blog and paste to a text widget in your sidebar (or wherever you want to include in your site / blog). This is done in WordPress:

Ready !

Look at the sidebar of my blog , just below my photo , how would . I advise to use this system because the button is quite striking , but if you see that does not work try with this code replaces ” youruser ” for your Twitter user :

Follow  @youruser”><a href=”; data-show-count=”true”> Follow @ youruser < / a>

Create A Twitter Account

Create a Twitter account based on a certain niche, maybe about baseball, or weight loss, whatever you want, I prefer to go with what interest me, like a hobby.

Create A Twitterfeed Account

Go to and sign up for a free account,

Create An Account

Head on over to, and click the “JOIN NOW” button near the top, fill out all the necessary information. At the bottom of the form, make sure your account type is set to “link shrinker”. only pays through PayPal and Payoneer. So be sure you’re signed up with one of those.


Working with RSS Feeds

Okay, so now what you want to do is go to Google, and search for any website that posts information and updates about the specific niche that you chose to base your twitter account on.

When you find the site you want, look for something on the page that will link you to that websites RSS feed, If you have trouble finding if they provide feeds or not, you can either go to “FIND” or “SEARCH” located in your browsers toolbar and type RSS in the search box, or enter the web site address in Google and add rss after it. eg: rss

This will usually bring you to a page where you can select what rss feed you want, some sites offer multiple rss feeds so select the one you feel fits your needs.


Adding Your RSS Feed To TwitterFeed

Go back to, and create a new feed. Add Feed of your desired website that you found in previous step To Twitterfeed. For this step all you have to do is copy the url of the feed you want to use, and paste it in to twitterfeed.

Add whatever you want for the name, and in the “Blog URL or RSS Feed URL” area, copy/paste (add) the url of the rss feed you want to use.

On the same screen click the “Advanced Settings” button and go to “shorten link through”, there is a drop down box beside it, open it up and scroll to the bottom and select “Custom”, Leave it empty for now and go back to, while logged in to go to the top of the page and click Tools, on the tools page go to “API Documentation” and click.

On this page you will see a link that looks like this

# represents your id and key.


Now take your key and uid and place it in this link (replace the # with your key and uid) Must Be Replaced With %@ In order for this to work.

Also you may have noticed that in the modified link “advert_type=int” has been removed, this is because TwitterFeed has issues showing the interstitial ad (full page ad) and just leads to a dead page when clicked, or shows the ads but doesn’t redirect to the desired page, so the only way to fix this is by removing the “advert_type=int” instruction from the link and will automatically use the interstitial link instruction and will work properly with TwitterFeed.

Now when that’s done, all you have to do is copy and paste your new link into the twitterfeed Custom endpoint box and “Continue to step 2” on twitterfeed.

LAST STEP!!! Make sure that you are logged in to the twitter account that you want to use with twitterfeed, you are going to want to activate your twitter account with twitterfeeds oauth so it will automatically post feed/blog updates to your twitter account using the rss feed that you provided to twitterfeed, when that’s all done, click done at the bottom, twitter will now get updated feed posts from twitterfeed, and the links in each post will now be automatically shrunk using and posted to your twitter updates, and every time someone clicks your link, you make a bit of cash.
