Can I use the Twitter API to ping the url of a webpage (that has the Tweet Count widget on it) and pull back the Tweet Count?
For example, on this page http://www.returnpath.net/blog/intheknow/2012/09/x-headers-what-they-are-and-13-ideas-on-using-them-to-measure-email-marketing-performance/, at the bottom is the Tweet widget which is displaying the count of how many times this article has been shared on Twitter.

Can I ping that URL and pull back that tweet count?
Can that tweet count be dropped into an excel file?

Sorry, I’m not a developer, but thought you guys would know.
