We set up Twitter cards last fall and it was working fine until recently. Now the large summary card is not working. When testing URLs on the card validator I get an “ERROR: Internal server error” message. Site is www.mcintoshlabs.com. Why am I getting this error and why aren’t cards working anymore?
I’ve just tested your URL and it seems to validate without an internal server error. I see a summary large image card is defined. You’ve got no
twitter:image tag defined on the front page, so the image is blank in the card. I haven’t checked your other URLs.
There’s a lot more troubleshooting information in the pinned post if you want to dig further.
Can you please try http://www.mcintoshlabs.com/us/Products/pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=blurayplayers&ProductId=MVP901. It is not working.
The page is timing out in the crawler since it takes more than a few seconds to load. I’m seeing the same thing when trying to fetch the page using
curl -A Twitterbot http://www.mcintoshlabs.com/us/Products/pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=blurayplayers&ProductId=MVP901 (although it does eventually pull down, and the tags look to be there).
Is there a time limit before the crawler times out?
I’d say anything over 5 or 6 seconds to get any data would be counted as a long time.
Has that changed on Twitter’s side recently? Our site has not changed so I don’t know why the URL I listed used to work but now doesn’t.
Not that I know of - sorry for this issue.
