Count Not Showing on Twitter Button

We use a Twitter button on lots of our clients' blog stories to allow people to quickly Tweet a story directly from the webpage. This is a useful and popular aspect of the blogging setup that we build and forms a package of optimisation features that includes Twitterfeed too.

Twitter ButtonsThis past week I noticed that some of the Twitter buttons weren't showing the correct stats for the pages. I knew there were Tweets about the pages but they weren't showing on the button counter.

Having spent some while looking for answers it turned out to be a cacheing issue. The browser (in my case Firefox) was just showing the button state from the first visit to the page. Clearing the cache immediately solved the problem. Simple!
