Web intent cards not using the meta name="author" tag



I am using the web intents to share from a website. This works well, I see the image, the title and description. At the bottom you have the website name e.g blablah.com, I have built sharing options before on twitter and it allowed you to show the author name e.g “by x person” as well. This would be if it were an article. Looks like the meta name=“author” is no longer picked up.
Where is the website domain picked from? is this done automatically from the URL?
Is there twitter tag that would allow to having something like blahblah.com | by Amar Habib
I setup the meta tags a few months ago and this was working.
