No More Tweet Numbers On the Share Button, Says Twitter


It feels like content marketing, social media, Google…heck, now Twitter—changes every day.

We’ve hit October now, and now I’m hearing that Twitter has redesigned its tweet and follow buttons and will be doing away with the share count – those numbers that display how many times a tweet has been shared.

The company announced this massive decision to remove a feature that has been part of share buttons for the past half a decade in a post on the Twitter community forum.

What’s more, the post added that, for the first time since 2011, Twitter would be updating its Tweet and Follow buttons. No more blue Twitter bird. No more 3D effect. No more black text.

The replacement: a basic 2D white-over-blue version.
