Twitter cards now failing on Wordpress




I had twitter cards working via the twitter plug-in. It has stopped working although I have changed no aspect of the plug-ins or updates.

Here is an example page where it was working (images now gone):

Here is an example where it stopped working:


The card for your website will look a little something like this!

Unable to render Card preview

INFO: Page fetched successfully
WARN: No metatags found

I have removed all plugins to test and it still produces the same errors.

Please help.

Thank you.


Stunned that it just rendered in the posting above.

Still fails in the card validator.

Still fails in Tweets.

Looks like your site is failing when pages are fetched by Twitterbot. Read our pinned troubleshooting post.


Hi Andy,

Thank you. The site seems to be running, do you have some insights on why this error will happen?

Facebook cards and other cards seem to work.

Please let me know.


I do not, it seems like the kind of thing you’d need to dig into your logs to understand. I can load pages in a browser but not pull them with a custom user-agent in curl.
