Twitter will now show exact retweet count Until recently, popular Twitter users were stuck with not seeing how many people retweeted or favorited their posts.
The posts would simply state "50+" if you got over 50 retweets or favorites, but now the site will show the exact count, even for past posts.

As one can imagine, Justin Bieber has a few posts with shockingly high amounts of retweets, including one where all he said was "New York City. #BELIEVE." That post saw 22,276 retweets.

A more important tweet, from Bill Gates promoting polio awareness, saw 1,178 retweets and 119 favorites. (Via Crunch).
