Twitter:image:src or twitter:image


The documentation is not clear on what meta tag to use for an image url.

it says you should use: twitter:image

it ways you should use: twitter:image:src

What’s the right way to do it?




Also the full HTML on the page for ‘summary_large_image’ shows the use of ‘twitter:image:src’.

While the ‘summary’ uses ‘twitter:image’.


What is the answer here please?


Bump. Would like to know as well.


It seems the documentation has been updated for using twitter:image only. But somehow github is still using twitter:image:src.


Both will work, but twitter:image is the canonical current tag name to use.
