    btw, Twitter also has the option for including the tweet count along side the tweet button (similar to what Facebook and the Google +1 provide). You can see info here:


    It would be great to have that included for consistency across the buttons as currently the count is not showing.

    btw, would like to help fund the costs of the the Twitter updates as this plugin is very useful for our site.

    ok so I dug through the code a bit and it appears that you are awesome and are already including the vertical count for twitter as part of the button display.

    When I started testing with different browsers I found that it worked fine in IE and Chrome, but not FF.. a bit more digging and it turns out that AdBlocker is blocking the twitter counter for some odd reason with your plugin, but not with Tweet This, which I was using previously. Once I disabled it all worked well.

    Hopefully this helps someone else that runs up against this.
