Utilising official Twitter branding on your site is a great way of associating yourself with what is becoming one of the most recognisable brands online. Another advantage of doing this and linking to your own or company’s Twitter account is that it gives you a mark of authentication, helping potential followers know this is your official account.
Luckily Twitter gives permission to use its branding on websites for free and can be utilised fairly quickly, helping to give your site a little something extra.
Here is a simple set by step guide on how to utilise official Twitter buttons and logos on your own site.
These can help promote your Twitter account almost anywhere on your own website and makes it simple for potential followers to start following you.
For example, we use these ourselves on our search specialists page and look like so:

Using a Tweet button can help get your message out there, allowing people to share your content through their own Twitter account but without having to leave your site.
For example, we use this feature ourselves on the landing page of our digital marketing blog, for each individual blog post and look like so:

Finally, you might like to use the Twitter logo in your marketing collateral. Again this is fairly straightforward with various versions of the logo available from: http://twitter.com/about/resources/logos.
If you plan in amending these logos in anyway, I would recommend you review Twitters page on Guidelines for the use of the Twitter Trademark.
