Change twitter cards to different account


#1

Hi,

I’d like to change the account I have that uses twitter cards to an account that is actually connected to the website that is using them. When I applied for twitter cards, I used my personal account, not knowing that the account would be shown with the cards when anyone posted a link from my website.

Is there a way to move my cards over to my more appropriate account?

Thank you,
-Chris

So I’m guessing it’s not possible. How about cancelling them for the account, then re-applying? Anyone? Twitter support? Is this thing on?


#3

Sorry for the delay. Let me see what I can do; I’ll have to follow up offline.


#4

Maybe I haven’t explained my issue. I’ll simplify. I’d like to no longer have twitter cards enabled for this account, easyBobIsBack.

Disable it. Make it go away. I will re-apply with the other account.

Fair enough. For the purposes of this thread, can you share out the domain so a Twitter employee (me or otherwise) can:

1.) Validate that you are the domain owner of said domain
2.) Do what you need to delete the association

Thanks!

Now I see your little twitter employee tag. Need to put that on your account, not just in here, less confusing for folks like me. :wink:

The domain is easysbabes.com. The account I would like to have it linked with is @EasysBabes (I’m sure you’ll see the issue with the connection to the personal account)

http://www.easysbabes.com/ryan.html For validation of the domain.

Thank you for the help. Apologies for not being a trusting person, safety first ya know. :slight_smile:

Deleted. You can re-submit now. Thanks.

Thank you Ryan. :slight_smile:

Ryan - I have a similar issue. I’m currently in the final stages of a redesign and wanted to add cards to the tweets generated from my sites tweet buttons.

I’m using a sub directory for testing the new site and also created a 2nd twitter account to test the card tweets.

When I applied for twitter cards, I mistakenly used the test twitter account with the address of my testing sub directory, thinking that later I would use my main twitter account with the main domain directory. I see now that I should have applied with my main twitter account, using the test account, to login, visit the site, and test the card with the tweet button.

Here’s the test account I applied with: @TesterPD
Test URL I used to apply with: http://www.peterdavidian.com/pd/

Account I want to re-apply with: @peterdavidian
URL/Domain I want to re-apply with: http://www.peterdavidian.com

http://www.peterdavidian.com/ryan/ For validation of domain ownership.
What other things do I need to do?

Questions:

  1. Can you have additional cards for different pages and/or sub directories, or are you only allowed to have one card per domain?

  2. What are the best practices for clearing the cache to test different versions of a card, ie: different image, title, text?

Thanks in advance!

0.) I’ve deleted your entry. You can re-submit with the new handle.

1.) You can have as many as you want. Just run examples of the page (by URL) through the validator.

Thanks Ryan.

You’re The Best!

I’m having the same issue for my account. I have opened a discussion here :

https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/22376

Can you delete the entry as well for me ?

Do I need to do other things to make things right ?

Thanks for the answer !

Since we have mistakenly created a Twitter card with as wrong Website Twitter Username,
we want you to delete this Twitter card.

Because the Domain we used is a test site and we don’t want it to be viewed by other person.
Is it possible to send you the domain/url by e-mail privately?

You should be able to update your website’s meta tags, specifying twitter:site or twitter:creator.

Our cache will update in 7 days, or you can use this technique:

Hi Jim,

Have you tried specifying twitter:creator or twitter:site?


#16

I have a similar issue as well and would like current cards deleted. I’m working with a multisite WordPress installation. I submitted for one of the blogs on the site and didn’t realize that the cards would display for all of the blog sites in the WP installation. Now I have the @PLOSMedicine handle when post links are tweeted from all the other blogs. I’d like to remove the cards and resubmit as soon as possible.

Account applied with: @PLOSMedicine
Test URL: http://blogs.plos.org/speakingofmedicine/2013/12/24/mhtf-plos-medicine-host-a-special-event-to-celebrate-year-2-of-the-maternal-health-collection/

Account I want to use: @plosblogs
Site: http://blogs.plos.org/

Thanks

@storybyte

Thanks!

Completed as per [node:25538, title=“this request”]

Since I mistakenly registered wrong account, I want to change the account from @SeoG to @mixi.
I updated my website’s meta tags one month ago, but the wrong account is still shown with my twitter cards.

Domain: mixi.jp and news.mixi.jp


#20

Just did the change.
Though are you sure you would not rather use @mixi_pr? In the card when the user clicks on the account at the top of the card, being sent to an protected account is not really great.

変更しました。
ですが@mixi_prを使った方がいいのではないでしょうか?ユーザーがカードの上にあるアカウント名にクリックすると鍵アカウントに飛ばされるのはあまりよろしくない気がします。
