Twitter has swapped out the "50+" retweet indicator with the actual number of times that a tweet has been passed along.

Twitter has removed the vague "50+" retweet indicator, letting amazing tweets display the actual amount of times the message has been passed along to other users — a number previously unavailable unless obtained through a third-party service. The change is retroactive, so you're free to take a look at past tweets' performances. The unadulterated retweet counts can be seen through Twitter's site and mobile apps.
