@adlerhn, This is as expected. Twitter Card details currently do not display in timeline. Only in Tweet details view on the permalink page.


@joncipriano thanks for the clarification. I guess when I saw the Cards samples I thought that functionality would display the photos in the timeline, as opposed to just in the permalink page.
