So I wanted to add some twitter follow buttons to Puppy Hunt but ran into a dilemma. I wanted to use the official twitter follow button that everybody is used to seeing from the web, but it is only 20 pixels high by 61 pixels wide. That would work just fine on the original iPhone screen resolution, but would be a pretty small button on the iPad. It would also be positively tiny on iPhone 4′s Retina screen.
So I set out to replicate the follow button as true to the original as possible, but in much higher resolution. Following are the results of my trials and tribulations.
If you compare the bottom two, the one on the left is my twitter button scaled down to the original size. The one on the right is the original twitter button. They aren’t exactly the same, but they are pretty darn close. If you think you can do better, download the source photoshop file below, tweak it, and let me know how you do.
