How to improve post views count display?

Question

I wanted to know if i can change the way i display views count in WordPress.

Example: 1000 views = 1k – 10000 views = 10k

I’m counting and viewing post views by using this code:

// Count views
function setPostViews($postID) {
  $count_key = 'post_views_count';
  $count = get_post_meta($postID, $count_key, true);
  if($count=='') {
    $count = 0;
    delete_post_meta($postID, $count_key);
    add_post_meta($postID, $count_key, '0');
  } else {
    $count++;
    update_post_meta($postID, $count_key, $count);
  }
}

// Show views
function getPostViews($postID) {
  $count_key = 'post_views_count';
  $count = get_post_meta($postID, $count_key, true);
  if($count=='') {
    delete_post_meta($postID, $count_key);
    add_post_meta($postID, $count_key, '0');
    return "0 View";
  }
  return $count.' Views';
}

// Show views in WP-Admin
add_filter('manage_posts_columns', 'posts_column_views');
add_action('manage_posts_custom_column', 'posts_custom_column_views', 5, 2);
function posts_column_views($defaults) {
  $defaults['post_views'] = __('Views');
  return $defaults;
}
function posts_custom_column_views($column_name, $id){
  if($column_name === 'post_views') {
    echo getPostViews(get_the_ID());
  }
}
