Is it possible for the tweet buttons to be cached, so that they are not requested every time thus slowing down the website


#1

On our blog page we have around 20 articles showing, each with a tweet button.

Each button makes a request to twitter to get the count. Is there a way of caching this, so that:
a) requests are only made every hour or so
b) so that I don’t reach any limits or requests per hour

Thanks in advance
