Card Validation - difference between tinyUrl and direct URL

cards
urls

#1

I am using tinyurl.com to automatically pass links to a feed @TryLoud

Whilst the card validator shows the correct information for: https://biggreenexchange.com/offer/details/37, the tinyurl equivalent does not work in the card validator: https://tinyurl.com/h7c4zaf/37

The tinyurl.com link works when pasted into the browser.

Any ideas what could cause this - as the cards do not appear in the twitter feed.

I have a similar system working on my own site @sellmyretro and it works fine - for example, compare the card validation for http://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/21625 with the tinyurl equivalent http://tinyurl.com/y8nwe39/21625

There is a warning about a redirection, but it is the correct redirection!

I cannot get the validator to show a card for either the tinyurl or the target URL - there is no card metadata at the page.

In the case of the second site (sellmyretro) it looks fine, but there are redundant fields twitter:label1 twitter:data1 etc which are not valid and no longer used.
