Tweet Button Shows 0 Fix

Twitter has a fancy widget/button called the Tweet Button that allows your readers to click a button to tweet about your webpage. It includes a count of how many people have tweeted about your page, similar to Facebook’s “like” button.

If your tweet button count seems to be stuck at zero try adding the data-counturl field. Its value should be the URL of the page you want the button to count (most likely the same value as your data-url field). Your tweet button code should look something like this:

<script src="" type="text/javascript"> </script>
<a href="" class="twitter-share-button"
data-text="Who are you following that's not following you back? Find out here:"
data-related="DustyReagan:Creator of Friend or Follow,Cesart:Designer of Friend or Follow"

This example above is obviously for Just swap out the details with your own site or page.
