Twitter Domain Name for its Spider


#1

Hi,

In order to curtail hotlinking on our site, I need to whitelist domain or wildcard domains. Currently Twitter Cards is returning a 403 for the image so I need to add a domain or set of domain names that Twitter uses when it retrieves an image from our site.

Any idea what they are so I can get them whitelisted? I’ve added *.twitter.com and *.t.co but still getting a 403 in the Twitter Cards Preview tool at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/preview

Best,
Jerry

Yeah, I see that the pages containing the card tags are crawled with an agent of “Twitterbot*” BUT I also see that the player link (for example) in said tags are hit with a different agent. Unfortunately I do not know what this other agent or referer domain is - I want to know too!

:-/

PS. Oddly enough the image links in the tags do indeed sem to get hit with “Twitterbot*” agent…
