Validator is having trouble detecting twitter:description meta tag, even though it's there


#1

Hi there,

We have an approved card, and recently noticed that our cards haven’t been working. I’ve put this URL through the validator, and it invalidates on the twitter:description meta tag, although it’s right there. Any ideas/help as so why this is happening?

Here are the relevant meta tags:

  <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
  <meta name="twitter:image:src" content="https://dd1ctajo646p.cloudfront.net/covers/Houghton%20Mifflin%20Harcourt/9780547548401/1376380482.43.jpg?w=800">

  <meta name="twitter:app:url:ipad" content="oysterbooks://book/ctsyU59FTwjb9sjDbUS743">

(Also, I noticed that some successful sites use the property attribute on the meta tag: view-source:http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/05/25/magazine/mark-bittman-ribs.html?partner=socialflow&smid=tw-nytmag)

Thanks!

I’ve just tested and it looks like it works. Sorry for the delay!
