Tweet button counter different for http:// vs. https://


Is seems that the Tweet Button counts a page differently if the URL is HTTP or HTTPS, even though both are the same page. I discovered this using WordPress’ built-in sharing plugin that generates a Tweet Button. Is this something that can be resolved? Incidentally, the Facebook Share button can differentiate between the two.


Pass a counturl parameter to collapse references.


I’m not sure this answers my question. I want the counter to count both HTTP and HTTPS. I’m not sure if you are suggesting I do the following:

Incidentally, this is on a blog on, so I can’t change the code. I am more curious to know if Twitter will change their API to be SSL-agnostic.


this seems to be an ongoing issue, we’re having the same problem. (website serving both http and https)

no response from Twitter so far.
