Javascript events not fired for follow button on mobile web


#1

I’ve implemented the Follow Button (https://dev.twitter.com/docs/follow-button) and can successfully detect user interaction (by listening to the ‘follow’ event. The desired behaviour is shown when a user is logged into Twitter - the follow button changes state and the js event is fired - all without a new window.
On mobile (Chrome/Android and Safari/IOS) clicking on the follow button always launches a new tab irrespective of whether the user is logged in, and the follow javascript event is never fired, even if the user clicks on the Follow button in the new window. Is this the expected behaviour?
