Twitter Cards Not Recognizing the OG:URL Tag


#1

I have the following URL

With these meta tags*:
property=“og:url” content="http://redef.com/mix/media-mix-1432017532169"
“twitter:url” content="http://redef.com/mix/media-mix-1432017532169"
rel=“canonical” href=“http://redef.com/mix/media-mix-1432017532169

However the Card Validator and Cards on Twitter always point to the URL submitted. How do I force to og:url or canonical URL to be the one it routes to?

*I realize twitter:url is deprecated, just had it there as a test.

Hi @roomnoise, a Summary Card will always link to the URL that is Tweeted.

If you need to, you could server-side redirect to an alternate URL if the user-agent is not Twitterbot.

Or use a client-side redirect, since Twitterbot will not execute javascript. That is less SEO friendly though.
