Why doesn't Twitter generate a twitter card for this URL?


In this tweet:

no Twitter Card is shown, as is true for more “new” posts on my site. For older posts, it seems as though Twitter does show Twitter cards, which I think is weird. Is there any logic to this? Is something missing in the twitter:card implementation on this URL:

As long as there is no debug tool there’s really no way to figure it out :slight_smile:


You can use https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/preview to test your markup (by URL or by pasting tags in the textarea). Seems like the is no description provided by your markup, that would prevent a card from rendering.


Does that also force a recrawl? :slight_smile:


Sadly, not yet. You could try re-tweeting the link using a link shortener like bitly.
