XF 1.3 Tweety flew away?

The tweet button does not seem very reliable. I have "enable tweet button" checked in the ACP (nothing entered for twitter account information, I only want the basic button). On this support forum the button bird image is missing.


On my forum the "Tweet" text shows during page loading but is gone after the page load. When I do some google research, the tweet address I find matches what is in the share control template
(a href=https://twitter.com/share).

            <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.tweet.enabled}">
                <div class="tweet shareControl">
                    <a href="https://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button"
                        data-lang="{xen:helper twitterLang, $visitorLanguage.language_code}"
                        {xen:if {$thread.title}, 'data-text="{xen:helper threadPrefix, $thread, escaped}{$thread.title}"'}
                        {xen:if {$xenOptions.tweet.via}, 'data-via="{$xenOptions.tweet.via}"'}
                        {xen:if {$xenOptions.tweet.related}, 'data-related="{$xenOptions.tweet.related}"'}>{xen:phrase tweet}</a>
I use this same code in another location and for that location the css is used to space out the other share buttons:
.statsSharePage .shareControl
    display: inline-block !important;
    padding-top: 2px !important;
    padding-right: 48px !important;
    vertical-align: middle !important;
/* ~spread out share page items~ */
I'll have to keep looking to see if I can find why the Tweet disappers. Any idea why the button image does not work? I found posts relating to twitter account information, but nothing directly about the missing bird image. http://www.odsc.on.ca/.xenforo/index.php
