I am working on the ultimate “About Page” component at the moment. And of course this won’t be complete without a button to follow the developer on Twitter. Tapbots is one company that has the best role model for modeling this. They have this little button here at the bottom of their about page:
There is something amazing that happened when I tapped on this “Follow us on Twitter” button: it opened up the tapbots user right in Tweetie 2! I was astonished at first, but then it dawned on me that on the iPhone you can have your app respond to a custom URL scheme and obviously some Twitter clients support going to the user’s profile page. I have only Tweetie 2 installed and incidently this supports just that.
