Twitter had decided in September that it would be removing share count feature when it announced new designs for its buttons. The decision took effect on November 20, however, Twitter share button still works.

Shareaholic uses a metric called Share of Voice which is the percentage of Twitter shares, relative to other sharing destinations available such as Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc.

Shareaholic said that with Twitter’s share of voice was at around 12.39% before it killed the counts and the share of voice declined to 11% after November 20.
