Card not displaying: Failed to fetch page due to: HttpConnectionTimeout


#1

Hi everyone,

After no recent changes to my website it appears cards have stopped working. It appears to be happening for all my blog posts. Here’s an example.

Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong? Any help is very much appreciated.

Edit: Here’s another, which appears to validate but doesn’t show the image. http://joelsperanza.com/classroom-practice/confessions-of-a-super-teacher/

Neither page validates for me, and the error message indicates that there’s a network issue between our crawler and your site. It could be a number of things, from a blocked connection to bad network latency.

Is there any chance that you’ve previously whitelisted Twitter’s IPs? We made a recent change in that area, so you might want to look into it.

Thanks Andy,

I take it blocked connection or network latency would be an issue I would take up with my hosting service right?

As for the whitelist, I’ve never consciously added anything to a whitelist, but obviously I’m a web novice so not sure how it would be possible.

Interestingly I seem to occasionally be able to get the card validator to validate those links. Is that a hint that it’s latency and not a whitelist issue?

Yes, I would suspect that it is latency / network performance, if sometimes it works and sometimes not.
