Add a Twitter Icon to your Blog

twitter search

I don't spend as much time as I'd like to on Twitter, but it really has established itself as a great tool – with many different uses. One of those uses for me is utilizing it to announce my posts automatically so any of my followers know when I've published on my blog. It's automated utilizing the Twitter Updater Plugin for WordPress.

It's gotten so mainstream that I decided to add it to my collection of Feed, Email and Mobile icons in my sidebar. Try as I might to find an icon, though, I didn't come across any on the net. So – I decided to make my own:
twitter 100twitter 75twitter 50twitter 25

Feel free to download all the Twitter Icons and even the Illustrator file I used to design them. Since I'm not a graphic artist, I don't mind where and how you use them or if you improve them. Hopefully, Twitter doesn't either!

    Hi Douglas,
    Thanks very much for sharing these icons. They were just what I was looking for to make a change from the ‘Twitter Boxes’ I have been using up until now.
    I’ve added an icon already in the sidebar of one of my blogs and it looks good.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I just added this plugin and apart from not remembering my email address that I registered my twitter account with (doh!) it worked like a treat once I put the right one in. Thank you.

    Love the icon! Who knows, maybe you just created the new Twitter icon. I’ll have to see if I can get this squeezed into the new web site before its launch later this week.

    Doug, did you take a perfect pill or something? Cuz this is just PERFECT. I was just thinking about adding Twitter to my personal blog and my web design blog. And BAM, here they are!

    Once again, just like your Contact Form plugin, an outstanding and very useful tool.

    Wow, perfect! I just Googled to find a nice twitter icon after giving up looking for something on twitter. Nice work, and I will use this in several places as I have several sites.

    Thank you so much!
