Microdata support in Cards


The new Twitter Cards is a great way to present content in a more engaging way. It’s good that Open Graph protocol is supported as a fallback, but I think it would be even better if Microdata were supported too. For example Google supports microdata for search results (ranking, author, price…).

I would propose using “CreativeWork” type as a base, supporting any of it’s descendants for the “summary” cards, and “VideoObject” and “ImageObject” types for the “photo” and “player” cards.
