This issue concerns the posting of a link to a blog into a tweet in Twitter.
When I add the relevant URL into the tweet the Twitter card will show the relevant text but the blog image is not generated. Is there a setting in Alloy that I need to apply to generate the appropriate Open Graph meta tag?
Adam, thank you for getting back so swiftly. I am now starting to believe there may have been an issue with Twitter.
A couple of hours before writing my post (and after attempting a number of tweets) I tried using Twitter’s ‘Card Validator’ (https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator). It was also showing the same error i.e. no image upload to the card.
A couple of hours after writing my post I again used Twitter’s card Validator and this time the text and image were uploaded to the card correctly. I then tried a tweet and it also uploaded correctly. I hadn’t changed any settings and have no idea how everything appears to be working.
In short, I believe I have wasted your time although I have now discovered that it appears Twitter can be a little flaky.
Thank you for this. I did have the Generate Social Tags switched ON as I thought this was the appropriate setting. I wasn’t aware that Alloy handles tags in its own way although I should say that I have managed to get a normal post to upload (text and image) without switching the Generate Social Tags OFF.
I am confused but this is the ongoing joy of working with websites
If you haven’t done so, I’d switch ‘Generate Social Tags’ to off as suggested by @jacksona. You likely have two Open Graph meta tags being generated: one by RW and one by Alloy. Twitter may not always select the correct one.
