Why don’t my Twitter Cards show on Twitter?

September 20th, 2015

The Photo, Gallery, and Product Cards were deprecated by Twitter on July 3rd, 2015. WPSSO Core continues to support all current Twitter Card formats, including the Summary, Summary with Large Image, App (WPSSO AM add-on required), and Player Cards — in both the Free and Pro versions of WPSSO Core.

The WPSSO Core Pro version supports the Summary, Large Image Summary and Player Cards. The Twitter Card type is selected based on your content:

  • Player Card — An embedded video in the Post / Page content.
  • Large Image Summary Card — An image from the custom Social and Search Optimization, Featured, Attached, or NextGEN Gallery singlepic.
  • App Card — Apple Store iPhone / iPad or Google Play App (requires the WPSSO Mobile App Meta add-on).
  • Summary Card — All other webpages.

For each type card you publish, you can submit a sample URL to Twitter’s Card validation tool.
