When I implemented OpenGraph tags on my site, to avoid duplicate mark-up, I added the og:description property to my meta description tag.
<meta name="description" property="og:description" content="descriptive text here" />
However this is not working for Twitter Cards. I know they will fall back to supporting Open Graph properties but they seem unable to do this when the tag has both a name and a property attribute.
ERROR: Required meta tag missing (twitter:description)
Is there a workaround other than duplicating the description?
