Twitter Share Count feature was officially removed by Twitter in the near past, which made most of our customers feel really uncomfortable, because they were threatened to loose all their shares. That is why we prepare an update that includes some new options, trying to compensate the missing counter and save all the numbers.

To display Twitter counter with the share button you have two possibilities:

  • use self-hosted counter provided by ESSB
  • use NewShareCounts.com service

If you have worked with Share Count feature of Twitter previously you have to change the settings made at Easy Social Share Buttons to set your Tweet button work correct and avoid loading errors with your website.

If you are new user you just have to set the method you prefer to use to display Twitter share number. Turning on the counters of Easy Social Share Buttons is not enough to make your Twitter share counter work.

Self-Hosted Twitter Share Counter

1. At Social Sharing -> Social Sharing -> Counters -> Additional Social Network Counter Settings That You Need To pay Attention you will find the option that allows to choose how Twitter share counter will work for your installation.

On each post/page where you have Tweet button with counter displayed you can change the counter value. Go to edit post/page mode and look for that section:

If you set a number here, that Twitter share value will be added to your Total counter number.

NewShareCounts.com Twitter Share Counter

If you prefer to use NewSharedCount.com service to display your counter, open http://newsharecounts.com/ and paste the URL of your site.

Then press Sign In with Twitter button. That will activate the Newshared Count service for your Twitter counter.
