Twitter Card Validator Not Allowing Player Card To Be Submitted for Approval


We’ve implemented ‘player’ cards on some of our video pages, and when we submit to the validator we get:

INFO:  Page fetched successfully
INFO:  25 metatags were found
INFO:  twitter:card = player tag found
WARN:  Not whitelisted

Upon entering our Administrative and Website information and hitting “Request Approval” we get the following message:

* whitelist request for failed
ERROR: player is not a valid card type

We’d like to submit our cards for approval, but it looks as if there may be some sort of bug not allowing us to. We observed a similar case here:

Example of affected URL:

We’ve looked through the Player Card approval process, as well as the markup, and there doesn’t seem to be an issue with our markup for the example above:

<meta name="twitter:card" content="player" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@startupsco" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:image" content="" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Big data. Data-driven. A/B testing. Optimization. These terms are often repeated in Silicon Valley, but what do they really mean for your company today? Mike Gr..." data-react-helmet="true">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Data-Driven Decisions |" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player" content="" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player:width" content="1280" data-react-helmet="true">
<meta property="twitter:player:height" content="720" data-react-helmet="true">

Any advice would be appreciated.



Thanks - investigating.


I tried doing the same thing and it’s doing the same exact thing to me. I’m still trying to find a solution also


Thanks, we are looking into this issue at present.


Please retry your whitelist requests. We cannot provide any specific ETA for whitelisting but this should now enable submission.


Thank you. I’ve submitted for approval successfully!
