Empty Twitter Card when Omitting twitter:site and twitter:creator


#1

Hi,

If I leave out twitter:site and/or twitter:creator then I get a blanco twitter card. According to the specs, site and creator are not required. What is wrong?

<meta property="twitter:card" content="summary" />
<meta property="twitter:site" content="@greenpeace" />
<meta property="twitter:creator" content="PlanetRelephant" />
<meta property="og:title" content="title title title" />
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:url" content="http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/awesome" />
<meta property="og:description" content="content content content content content content content content  " />
<meta property="og:image" content="https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/2582000359/i5ln9hof1wwfgubxhdo2.jpeg" />

Regards, Leonard

You have to pass at least one of the metatags (twitter:site and/or twitter:creator), even though the specs says the metatags are not required.

This should be fixed now.

If we already use twitter:site, are we obliged to create twitter:creator ?

No twitter:creator is optional.
