Inconsistent Tweet Count Between Tweet Button and Twitter Search


#1

We’re experiencing several issues related to the way Twitter currently counts and displays tweets made through the official Twitter button on our blog. Sometimes after clicking the tweet button belonging to a post with a significant number of tweets, twitter returns no tweets related to the post. This usually occurs with posts that are only a few days old. Is there a retention window for which tweets are searchable?




In a related issue, you’ll also notice that Disqus’s ‘Reactions’ plug in isn’t picking up some of the activity. Has anyone else encountered and fixed a similar issue?

Thanks in advance!

We’re investigating some counting issues with the Tweet Button right now, but to answer your question – the Twitter Search index only goes back a few days – usually no more than a week into the past. It’s likely the reason you can’t find the tweets in Search for a number of these articles.

Thanks for such a prompt response, I suspected that might be the case [with indexing].
