Hello Twitter Devs,
You guys helped me get my twitter share button working on my random quote machine with twitter web intents, thanks again, so much for that! I’m still using that as my learning space, and now I want to challenge my creativity, and see if I can use the twitter cards to share an image with the quote instead of just the text, since the 140 character limit restricts the quotes that can be used. That way the quote itself looks more appealing, and the 140 characters can be used for personal messages, hashtags, links, branding, etc.
I read the documentation several times, and tried to follow along, but ultimately the best I could do was end up with an error message about missing a URL parameter. I could not find anywhere in the list of required parameters, where it said to put a URL parameter. Is this because I’m trying to use cards on an unsupported platform, i.e., my local system?
How much different are cards from the tweet button functionality I already have implemented? Is this a completely different animal? Do I need to have my own twitter server running a twitter service or something, (I thought I read that somewhere in the forum)? I did purchase a few domains, so I can put something live if I need to, but I cannot make heads or tails out of the documentation - sorry, I just keep going in circles with it. I just need to know on a super high level, what I need to do, then I can get the ball rolling and come back for help if I get stuck on any details.
