The Twitter Badge – Make Your Blog Stand Out!

Twitter Badge

Update 12th August 2009 – I came across this site and absolutely had to post it here – I guess this is the most comprehensive list of twitter badge/ twitter bird logos I have come across on the net so far, so have fun choosing the one that will make your blog a killer!

If you have a blog or website, you really should be tweeting on Twitter. Are you? Sign up!

To get the most out of this cool social networking site, you should also have a twitter badge on your site, making it easy for people reading your site to follow you on Twitter straight away.

Now, if you are like me, you want your website or blog to look good, right? My blog seems to be my creativity outlet (I used to paint and draw until I got sucked into internet marketing and creating blogs) ๐Ÿ™‚

When it came to put a twitter badge on my blog, I went and started searching for a really good one that I loved. I had seen several different ones on different blogs, some of them quite good, quite a lot of them pretty ugly. See, I found as I looked that there were a few sites that had a collection of twitter badges to choose from, but most of them were pretty plain, nothing to write home about. I wanted something special!

So I was pretty devastated ๐Ÿ™ until the day I found Vincent Abry’s website full with gorgeous twitter badges. I think this guy has done an awesome job, and every single one of his twitter badges looks great!

If you like your badge animated, or like a slim look, have a look at these badges, they are pretty cool, too!

Or you can find some quite trendy ones right HERE.

Minimalists can find a cute little birdie on this site. The site actually contains a lot of free social buttons, you should have a look at it (not just for Twitter).

So go and dress up your website or blog with these cool twitter badges!

    Everybody appears to be talking about twitter at the moment – probably because of the Hudson plane crash and tht guy taking the photo and distributing via twitter. I need to get my head around it.

    Hi, Twitter is the big news of the day. Just amazing how it just took off. I am on twitter, but still trying to figure it all out. I think the biggest issue with me, is all the apps for twitter. It seems every day someone creates a new widget,app,etc for this site, hard to exactly know which is best to use to promote…but I will keep on learning. Great post, thank you…Cheers

    Hi Joey,
    there are a lot of Twitter applications out there, but I don’t think you should feel pressured or overwhelmed to try them all out. With Twitter I think you should just go with the flow, and whenever you come across an application you think you could use, put it in your bookmarks on the computer (create a “Twitter” folder first!) and use it whenever you remember that it’s there! That’s what I do, anyway. I have just discovered “TwitPic” and love it, so I will be using it more often now.

    I am using Twitter and have a twitter badge from on my site, but my followers are still very few, and they do not visit the site. Do you know why?

    Josephโ€™s last blog post..A bloody good time

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Joseph, I think you need to put a twitter badge on your site that is more prominent than the one you have. What you have is only a display of how many twitter followers you have and links straight to the twitter buttons page, not your personal twitter home page.

    What can Twitter actually do for my business?

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @formolo, Twitter is a great social networking tool where you can gather a large following of people who might be interested in what you have to say, or what you sell. It will help drive traffic to your site(s).

  16. This blog rocks! I gotta say, that I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    Have tried twitter but just cant seem to get my head around the number of followers that you can gain in just a few weeks and to be honest most of them I don’t find that interesting following them.
    The badges are great for anyone who is an avid twitterers but its just not for me or maybe I am looking at the whole thing in the wrong way.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Cali, you are not expected to read what all the people that follow you say. For me, whenever I log in to my Twitter account, I only scan the first site and see whether there is anything or anybody on there that interests me. I am quite sure that most people do it that way. But that also means that your tweets will not necessarily be read that much – unless you have got a real big following. The more people follow you the more will see your tweets and the higher your chances of getting them read. It’s all a numbers game.

  20. Excellent site twitter is very helpful once u have active followers. I will use this info!

    twitter is wonderful to get traffic and a great way to promote your business ,its better to join twitter groups that is similar to your business.thanks!

  23. jim says:

    I think social media plays an important role to make your business popular and twitter is one of the best social networking website ever.

  24. Having a twitter badge will make our blog stand out? Yes but I don’t think it’ll make anyone’s blog stand out…if they don’t have good content…no one would want to follow them. Correct?

    Also I am amazed how much people go crazy about twitter, but yes a blogger should have twitter badge because people are mad about twitter and it can be good to make lots of fans through it.

    Yeah…and as people above me have already said it…It’s definitely one of the great ways to get traffic so that’s why it’s one of the most useful tools out there. But one has to promote in a way which doesn’t annoy their followers or atleast those who’ve started to follow newly ๐Ÿ™‚

    For businesses, to promote their business on twitter is a tough ask, they’ve to market their business very well on it so that they don’t turn people off.

  25. I have several twitter account and i use them in different purposes. I use only one id for extremely personal use and others are for business. Those business id’s have good looking badges and i use them in different sites. But don’t use personal one for this.

  26. Can you provide me some tips on how to increase the list of followers on tweeter and how do I Can use Twitter For SEO?

    • Petra Weiss says:

      The more people you follow, the more will follow you. Also, if you provide interesting and resourceful tweets, your following will increase.
      You can leave links in your tweets to some of your blog posts or pages, they will not be dofollow but they will bring you more visitors.
