Get total post retweets

Adding the first block of PHP code to your functions.php and then the second tweetCount function into your single.php will display the number of retweets for your blog post.

function tweetCount($url) {
       $content = file_get_contents("http://api.tweetmeme.com/url_info?url=".$url);
       $element = new SimpleXmlElement($content);
       $retweets = $element->story->url_count;

           echo $retweets;
           echo '0';
           tweetCount( get_permalink($post->post_id) );
