    Thanks for posting these directions…I wasn't sure how to add this “new” twitter button to my blog when I set it up this morning until, fortunately, I found your instructions. I didn't run into any complications getting the code posted in my Blogger using your above directions and actually got it to work on the first try. Believe me, given my previous experiences trying to edit/add something to my blog using the HTML section, the fact that I was even able to get what I was trying to do accomplished is a huge compliment to you. Thank you again :-).

    Great post (love the builder). Could you add a field in your builder to allow for the “suggest accounts to follow” feature?
