    The twitter button appear twice for very short posts (such as poems) in a page that shows excerpts.

    See screenshot (disregard weird textbox in IE8 - I fixed that and describe how in another thread in this forum)
    This occurs in IE8 and in the latest Firefox.

    Apologies for the delay in replying.

    The weird textbox around facebook like is fixed in next release. Will be releasing it today or tomorrow.

    The tweet button appearing twice is specific to your site. without the site link it wont be possible to tell the reason.

    Most likely it is because you might have kept your old plugin on your server. Try to delete the old plugin completely and also if you are using cache plugin, try to clear the cache.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your reply. The textbox I fixed. I did empty the cache - several times.
    As for the old plugin, I updated the usual way, by clicking the WordPress link announcing there is a newer version. How am I supposed to delete the old plugin? I checked the file with FTP but there are no versions attached to file names.
    I updated to Version 2.4.0 and the twitter button still appears twice in excerpt posts although the changelog says it was fixed.

    This is my web site

    When I say old plugin it is not my plugin. Did you use in past any other plugin to include twitter?

    If you right click on your site and view source code the tweet code inserted for the first button is not same as what i use for my plugin. Which means it is inserted by some other plugin you might be using or have used before.

    <p> <a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="http://immizen.com/2012/03/08/bonny-summer-hat/" data-text="Bonny Summer Hat" data-count="horizontal"></a> </p>

    Thanks, BeingMaverick. That brings me closer to the solution, I guess. so, "http://twitter.com/share" is not from your plugin?

    But it looks identical to your Twitter button in the box below.

    I looked at all plugins and I thought it could be Jetpack which I had activated for a while then deactivated. I deleted Jetpack. I emptied the cache. All files are gone but the twitter box is still there.

    I have 14 plugins and only yours and "oa-social login" have something to do with Twitter, but "oa-social login" buttons look different and only appear for login.

    BeingMaverick,

    I disabled "Twitter, Facebook Like, Google plus one Social share" (TFGS) plugin and the extra twitter button disappeared.

    Therefore the problem is with TFGS.

    Can you please help?

    Another way to avoid Twitter box from appearing twice in excerpts is to "disable Twitter" by unchecking the "Active share buttons" Twitter box.

    Therefore this is obviously a bug with the "Add Twitter, Facebook Like, Google plus one Social share" plugin and I would really hope it can be fixed or at least find a workaround that does not include disabling Twitter.
