Why are my shortened links getting tweeted but not displaying the right count?


I created shortlinks on my own service using a pretty link plugin on my website.

My problem is now, whenever I tweet something, it isn’t displaying a proper count.

My twitter displaycode is this

function twitterLike(){
global $post;
$via = get_user_meta(‘user_twitter’,$post->post_author,true);
$title = $post -> post_title;
$url = mediaSocial::postLikeUrl();
$posttags = get_the_tags();
< 'a href=“https://twitter.com/share” class=“twitter-share-button” data-url="<?php echo $url; ?>" data-via="@NoVoiceless <?php if(!empty($via)){echo "@".$via;}?> “data-lang=“en” data-text=”<?php echo $title; ?>" data-related=“anywhereTheJavascriptAPI” data-count=“vertical” data-hashtags="<?php if ($posttags){foreach($posttags as $tag){echo $tag->name . ', ';}}?>">Tweet


the short url for example would be this http://n0v.co/1nhc << when you go here, it takes you to the page, and when you try to tweet it, it attemts to share the short code… BUT, it doesn’t up the count… so no matter how many tweets and retweets it gets, it always says 0…

If it doesn’t have the short code, it works fine. any thoughts as to why?


the < 'a isn’t actually displayed like that, I just put it in there so the full code would show up on the page. “<a” is the accurate.
