Summary_large_image card image not displaying


#1

For example, the following nsfw url [http://babewar.com/country/latvia] (http://babewar.com/country/latvia) goes through the validator without problems, and the preview image displays correctly.
But when the url is included in a tweet, e.g. https://twitter.com/babewardotcom/status/787316220785819648 the image does not show…

Can anyone help?

Shows fine for me. Are you using the official Twitter app or website, or a third-party client? Cards cannot be shown in third-party clients.

Thanks Andy,

I’m seeing this behavior on the Twitter website on the Mac in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
If I run the tweet url through IE NetRenderer I see the same thing:

I have had other twitter cards with images from this site working perfectly for some time now (and these continue to work fine) so I can’t figure out where the problem might lie with these more recent additions…

Aha!

I think I may have figured this out - perhaps this will help others too.

I had the following setting ticked:

Mark media I tweet as containing material that may be sensitive

But I didn’t have the following setting ticked:

Do not inform me before showing media that may be sensitive

This seems to mean that my twitter card images will not show when the links are tweeted by my account unless the viewer has chosen to view sensitive media previously (they do not get the option to show the media, as they do with a normal tweet). As I had not chosen to view sensitive media, the images on the cards were not shown to me, even though I had tweeted them!

The cards that were working for me (even though my settings required me to be informed before seeing sensitive media) were tweeted by other users who (presumably) had not marked their own tweets as sensitive!

If I tick the Do not inform me before showing media that may be sensitive setting, my card images now show up for me.

It may be worth adding something to the docs to say that another possible reason for a twitter card image not to show might be the Mark media I tweet as containing material that may be sensitive setting in combination with the Do not inform me before showing media that may be sensitive setting…

Thanks for getting back to me, though, I’ve been pulling my hair out on this one!
