Deep linking without a url in the tweet text



I am implementing twitter cards & deep-linking on my site. I want the card to appear for a tweet made when a user clicks the twitter share button on an event page. The tweet text is something like this ‘Pistons @ Spurs - Wednesday, Feb 26 @ 8:30pm - AT&T Center’. I set the deep link url in the twitter:app:url meta tags, however there is no url in the tweet text.

Will cards & deep-linking still work in this case?

Thank you,


You need to include a link to your page with cards markup in the actual tweet text.
