Twitter Cards

As you may or may not have seen in the Twitter feed on the homepage, I’ve been having a devil of a time figuring out Twitter Cards, which are awesome and head-bang-y all at the same time. Adding a headline and image to a tweet that DOESN’T count towards the 140 character limit is pretty awesome, but figuring out why the description wasn’t also showing up was, well, troublesome.

Fortunately, thanks to this lovely website, I now know there’s a card type called “summary_large_image”, which fixed my problem lickety-split! Funny how none of the other websites I’d been researching on had thought to mention it. Hmph.
