Twitter share count is not updating after clicking on the “Tweet” button.

  1. Go to http://shirley.gigya-cs.com/asos2.html

  2. Click on the “Tweet” button

URL: https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?original_referer=http%3A%2F%2Fshirley.gigya-cs.com%2Fasos2.html&related=ASOS&text=What%20do%20you%20think%3F%20Should%20I%20buy%20this%3F&tw_p=tweetbutton&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.asos.com%2FASOS%2FASOS-Sweatshirt-With-Parental-Advisory-Print-And-Mesh%2FProd%2Fpgeproduct.aspx%3Fiid%3D4184475%26cid%3D5668%26sh%3D0%26pge%3D0%26pgesize%3D36%26sort%3D-1%26clr%3DBlack&via=ASOS

Any update on this issue?

The reason is because your URL is not a final URL.
When you tweet that URL, Twitterbot (the Twitter crawler) tries to get http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Sweatshirt-With-Parental-Advisory-Print-And-Mesh/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4184475&cid=5668&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Black but it gets redirected to http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Sweatshirt-With-Parental-Advisory-Print-And-Mesh/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4184475&cid=5668&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Black&r=2 so it considers that the URL tweeted is the one after redirection. If you change the URL tweeted to the one after redirection, you will get a non-0 count (currently 11).
