I was looking for an easy way to link to your Twitter profile in a user’s Twitter Application of choice from an iOS App. There were lots of handy resources, but no complete solution for iPhone so I coded one up and threw it on GitHub: Twitter Follow Button for iOS
It’s pretty simple to use:
Or you can just change the class of a UIButton in the Interface Builder and then synthesise it as a property.
I hope that this helps some people out!
Credit where credit’s due!
This is largely several others’ work pulled together to create a simple-to-include repo.
