I am seeing the issue with awe.sm links. It seems unlikely, but my
theory is that Twitter isn't unwrapping *all* redirect links to
attribute to the count, only those on certain domains.

See:
http://backtweets.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwordpress.org%2Fextend%2Fplugins%2Ftweet-button-with-shortening%2F
vs.
http://search.twitter.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwordpress.org%2Fextend%2Fplugins%2Ftweet-button-with-shortening%2F

Anyone have any info on this?
