Tweet counter not updating
Now, when you click to expand a tweet, you may notice that the replies are not showing in a chronological order.
Instead, Twitter will show different users different subgroups of conversations relating to a particular tweet.
Whilst we are sad to see it retired, we accept the previous Twitter share count was not perfect.
If a thousand people have shared an article it indicates that the article has more value and relevance than an article that has been shared by say just five people.
We accept that Twitter share counts can be inflated by bots and by multiple sharing.
There is also no guarantee that someone sharing a post has actually read it.
That said we still believe there is value in having Twitter share counts as they are one indicator of social proof and value.
