Customize Twitter Follow Button In 7 ways!

Twitter official Follow button can easily be customized by changing the button color, text and link colors and to show or hide the followers count display. The best location to add your twitter button is the header section. This area has the highest page impressions and you will surely observe an increase in your twitter count by adding the button to the top position. Lets now customize our twitter counter so that it may blend just perfectly with your blog and website theme.
Create Custom Twitter Follow Button

You can make 7 changes to the button appearance. You can change:
  1. Button background color
  2. Text Color
  3. Link Color
  4. Followers Count Display
  5. Language
  6. Width
  7. Alignment
The only changes that makes sense to me are the first 4 changes. Remaining changes should be made only of you run a blog with complex design and language other than english.
The normal code looks like this:

<a href="http://twitter.com/alijee2902class="twitter-follow-button">Follow @alijee2902</a>
<script src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
