Large summary image not showing up in validator


#1

Hi, I’ve created a twitter card for with a large summary photo but can’t get the photo to show up in the validator. Everything appears green and the card is approved. I was able to see an image for about 3 minutes until I switched the image to a new one. Now even if I switch the image back to the original one doesn’t show up.

I’ve tried several things:

  1. I fingerprinted the image name to cache bust it…

  2. I made sure the image is exactly 250px x 250px

  3. I verified the robots.txt file which looks like:

User-agent: Twitterbot
Disallow:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /scripts/
Disallow: /styles/
Disallow: /fonts/
  1. I moved the image out to a /social/ subdirectory just to make sure robots.txt doesn’t affect it.

  2. I’ve tried validating the card using bitl.ly URLs pointing to my site

If an image never appeared in the validator, I’d continue to think there was an issue on my end. Does anyone have any thoughts?
