Javascript Twitter Button Count Incorrect


The Twitter button seems to not display the incorrect tweet counts. I have my Tumblr automatically share posts to Twitter. However, after I post, the Twitter button associated with that post always increments to 2. However, there should only be a single tweet. Clicking through on the button count to Twitter search confirms that the tweet count is off. You can see this on

My Tumblr code is:

<a href="" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="{Permalink}" data-text="{PhotoAlt}" data-count="horizontal" data-via="Brickd" data-related="8bitkid">Tweet</a><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Similarly, I notice the same type of behavior with the Twitter button when I was hosting a WordPress blog and a blog I have on Posterous


Hey Max! Hope all is well buddy!

I’m actually having the same issue I think on a Wordpress site I’m working on:

Any luck?


Hi! I have yet to make any progress on the issue here or with support. Hopefully one of the Twitter folks can look into this.


same here, twitter counter always shows ++1.


I am facing similar issue, my twitter count is showing 0, despite sharing the url so many times.
And when the count is coming on some pages & the same url shared from different location, the count is not coming out to be same.
Please suggest some solution.
