Twitter card not working


#1

Hi,

I have added the appropriate code to ensure that certain blog pages on my website appear with a large summary preview when I paste their URL to twitter, however when I tweet the link from my twitter account, I just see the URL, the preview is not displaying.

Here is my code…

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="ch-designs.co.uk">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Why your business needs a website">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@chdesigns44">
<meta name="twitter:image:src" content="http://www.ch-designs.co.uk/why-your-business-needs-a-website.html">

Can anyone see what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks

The twitter:image tag is pointing to an HTML page, not to a valid image of the right size and format for a summary large image card.

ah, good spot. Though i have pointed it to the right image now and it still didn’t show up the image itself

this is what I see when I post a link to said page.

What I want to see is something like this…

UPDATE - It is working now!

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="ch-designs.co.uk">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="So why would a small business, who maybe only require a brochure site of a few pages, choose to pay a web designer?">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@chdesigns44">
