How to Activate Twitter’s Tweet Counts
You may know that Twitter made the decision to deprecate their Tweet count feature, a decision that left many website owners without any social proof from the Twitter environment. Social Pug never had the opportunity of supporting tweet counts, as the plugin was launched after Twitter made the changes, but now things are different.
We have partnered with New Share Counts to bring tweet counts to Social Pug. Because this is a third party solution, to take advantage of this feature you will have to follow the two easy steps below.
Register your website
Register your website on New Share Counts website. Simply enter your website’s domain and sign in with Twitter.
Activate tweet counts in Social Pug
On the Settings page, under the Misc heading you will find an option to Enable Twitter Tweet Counts. Simply check the option and Save the settings.
Note: New Share Counts only has free access to 7 days of Twitter history from the day you add your website for tracking. Shares that happened before might not be counted. Further shares are counted properly.
If your social shares do not show up immediately please read this article.
