Where is a Twitter card geographically populated from, and can this be re-configured?


#1

I have installed Twitter cards on a UK based site I manage. Some content is only licensed for users in the UK, so I have geographic based redirects on specific pages so that users outside of the UK get redirected to a generic ‘you are not allowed to view this content’ page. Now if I tweet a URL to one of those specific pages, the Twitter card links to the intended page, but automatically shows the details from the ‘you are not allowed to view this content’ page. I am presuming this is because Twitter is accessing the content from outside the UK. (?) - Is there any way to get around this issue ?

To see an example:

Thanks.

Sorry, there is no way to modify this behaviour. Cards are run from a global crawler which will fetch content based on sharing behaviour.
