Received email from you (Twitter support) saying the url for twitter cards did not vailidate
for my food blog site www.scrumptiousscran.com - and have gone through the
validation process again. Everything checks out and I press the request
validation button and complete the form. When i press “request approval” I
get the error message:
Something went wrong and your request to be added to the whitelist failed.
Please try again.
Reason: is not a valid screen name
The Screen Name is completed - I tried using both my own name - Chris Berry -
and the Twitter account name - Scrumptious Scran, but still no success.
The only thing I can think is that “Website Twitter Username” field on the
form is grayed out and won’t let me enter anything. This is despite the “twitter:creator” and “twitter:site” both being validated.
I have been waiting for approval for a Twitter card for several weeks now,
and have found the process to date so unhelpful I am about to give up on
both the cards and Twitter, as it is really putting my marketing of the
site at a disadvantage.
Hope you can reverse my disappointment in Twitter…
Chris Berry aka Scrumptious Scran
