If you've always wished you could embed Twitter follower buttons directly into video, your wait is over.

Thanks to the folks at Wistia, it's now possible to do just that, reports The Next Web.

Wistia's new Follow Lab has come up with a way to add one or more Twitter follow buttons -- like the ones now plastered onto just about every Web site in the world -- directly into videos. The company's new tool lets you embed the buttons wherever you want in a video, and allows you to include follow buttons for more than one Twitter account.

By dropping Wistia's embed code into your video management system, you can quickly include the buttons. And the Follow Lab Web site makes it easy to specify which Twitter accounts to include, and when in the video the buttons should appear, as well as for how long. It also has an option allowing a Twitter ID to be placed at the very end of any video.

The Follow Lab Web site was designed to let video creators play around with the settings in order to understand how to use it, and then to clear the settings before embedding code.
