Twitter FollowMe Module

★ Shows your Last Tweet, Follower count and you can be followed in the same browser window ! Forget Newsletters and other Campaigns for now and harness the power of Twitter to drive traffic to your site and promote your site with Follow Me. This Twitter Followme module was inspired by the many similar modules and plugins for the more popular CMS out there like Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla. You are sure to catch your visitors attention with the Pagepeel effect icons. What makes Followme different is that its lightweight and validates fixing what was found to be lacking.

Keeping this in mind there are only two included images that can be selected in the parameters and you can also select your own by entering the Full path to the icon you want to use.

Coming up in the next version will be some Super slick css styling. The bird icons used here were created by Gopal Raju of

It's great when modules/extensions work exactly as the developer describes. It was an easy download, simple installation and the configuration options are flexible enough to integrate into my template without hacking the css or the code.

Kudos to Herboy!!!

So easy and so cute, many thanks to the dev team ;)

Suggest: maybe one day a slide window to twitter as facebook slider, would be perfect...

Works just as indicated. Make sure to chose the right file. I mistakenly installed J1.5.7 when I needed J1.6.2

Following the instructions on their website, I easily installed this module. They even showed how to create a new position in my template for it. All very easy. It works great, and looks fabulous!
Well done, Herdboy, well done indeed.

Good little extension, easy to configure and very effective. Shows your tweets, and allows the user to follow from the same window. Neat - and very pretty too.

Thanks for the wonderful extension.It was working fine & then today just stopped.

When you click the twitter bird popup opens with "Unfortunately, this feature is currently unavailable."

I see this also the case on your demo site.
Owner's reply

Thbnaks for the Review. As I explained to you in the Support Ticket you opened, you saw this issue because the Twitter API was down, meaning every single User of the Twitter API experienced some issue for a short while including Twitters own API Demo pages.

This is such a cute FollowMe that I don't know how any visitor could resist clicking on it!

Together with Tweetboard Joomla1.6 from the same developer it makes a very complete Twitter solution.

Installation and configuration was just "plug n play" and done in minutes for both extensions.

It's FREE and it even comes with a free Support Forum where you get quick and friendly response :-)

Cute little thing that pops out at the side of the page. Sure to attract visitor's attention!

Just a question - is it possible to make it disappear and only appear when the user starts to scroll the page?
Owner's reply

Thanks for taking the time to Review. Currently the feature you suggest is not avilable, but I will investigate adding this fucntionality.

I once passed by this mod because it didn't have the look I wanted for one of my sites. I recently created a simple and clean site with white borders and needed a follow us mod. I had forgotten about this one and when I say it I tried it. Excellent! I'm glad I did, works right out of the box, easy to configure, looks great on my white border. If all you want is a way for people to follow your twitter and don't need all the feed and fan stuff, this mod is excellent!! Good job!

Thank you for this nice module.
Picture of the bird could be a little bit smaller, lets say..
Owner's reply
