Our clients see "Access denied" instead of the Follow button


Our company’s clients work in public sector organisations which routinely block access to social media sites (including Twitter).

We have Twitter’s Follow button on our homepage, but when our clients look at our homepage this is typically replaced with a horrible red message saying “Access denied” (which gives no clue as to what has been denied or why).

Are we permitted to replace the Follow button with a linked image that looks identical to it (including our Twitter name), so that our homepage looks OK and it is obvious to the user what is happening if they click the link and are then blocked from proceeding?
