Data-counturl not incrementing


I just changed my tweet button to use a short url, and the value is no longer incrementing when I tweet the article.

This article had 3 tweets before I changed it to use the short URL - and I just tweeted it but the value does not increase.

I am passing the data-url:
And I am passing the data-counturl:

In this format:

<a href="" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="" data-counturl="" data-lang="en" data-count="horizontal" data-via="LawTechNews"><!--Tweet--></a>

What could be the problem?


It does seem to update after about 15 minutes. I expected the count that is displayed to increment immediately when the user clicks the Tweet button. Maybe it should and there’s something wrong with my implementation - anyone know?
