I guess you mean 'where people can follow a specially set up Twitter
You need to get user credentials via Twitter oAuth API and authenticate with
Twitter, Once authenticated, you can make the logged in user follow the
Twitter account in question.
The simplest way to handle this is just put a "Follow us on twitter" button
on the site and link it to the twitter account page
http://twitter.com/#!/your_account_name on where the visitor can then choose
to login+follow.
