    Unfortunately there isn’t really a different method. 🙁 The only way to get it now is through Gnip, which is absurdly expensive. But otherwise Twitter has removed all ways to get the number of shares for a URL.

    I will be updating the plugin in December to remove the counter for Twitter, I’m just out of town right now so haven’t been able to do it sooner.

    Okay, thanks for your reply.

    But please do not remove the Twitter button. At the moment I use the plugin without the counter, simply by not showing the count for the Twitter button via CSS (I added “display: none” to the count and added an “:after” attribute with content Tweet).

    This is how I use it:

    So what about adding an option to the buttons for showing or hiding the count per network instead of for all networks? Then you can keep Twitter button without the count.

    Don’t worry I won’t be removing the actual button – I’ll just be removing the counter number for it. 🙂

    Oh okay, phew… 🙂

    I’ve implemented this in the update today. 🙂
