Twitter's adding a follow button to websites, giving users direct access to the accounts of their favourite celebrities, politicians, athletes, media personalities etc. The idea is that there are certain websites users visit everyday and adding a “follow” button next to Facebook's “Like” button on those pages will prompt users to discover and instantly follow certain Twitter accounts.
