Right now we include the scheme in the URL we give Twitter. This causes this problem and also means there is a difference between and httpS://, which is bad.

  1. Post twitter messages for a package from preview.nuget.Org.
  2. The "no of tweets" button on packages page gets updated after a long time.
    Guess, its not in our control and that's how the tweeter plugin behaves.

  3. Once it updates the number say to "2" , clicking on that takes me to twitter search result for "" and the search always returns 0 results.
    This also looks like some issue on twitter side, but it is a really required info.
    As an end user, I would be interested in seeing what people have shared about this page.


One option would be to collect the social sharing numbers with a background worker for http/https (e.g. a Web Job) and store it inside the database.
With such a background job in place the nuget gallery would not need to include the Twitter/Facebook Javascript files - which is better for performance and privacy. On example of such a "customized" social sharing links would be this (German) news site:


  • Background-Job (could also be inside the NuGet Gallery)
  • Storage inside the database

What do you think?

Yeah... it could definitely work (in our case it would have to live in the NuGet.Services.Work repo). I'm not sure we're seeing a huge demand for the feature though.
