I recently resctructured a website and moved a subdomain to a subdirectory (ie subdomain.domain.com became domain.com/subdomain). There are a lot of ‘Tweets’ on pages at the old URL and we would like to keep the count for the new URLs. Facebook has a method in place which let us keep the ‘Likes’ and I was hoping Twitter had something similar but was not able to find any information in the documentation.
The old URLs are 301 redirected to the new URLs. Does Twitter support the HTTP redirect standard?
