Preview your tweets with Twitter Cards

CasperAdvance, Blog, Featured, Social Media, Wordpress

Have you noticed that your Twitter app sometime shows previews of links in tweets? Just below the tweet, there is a photo or even an excerpt of a blog with a thumbnail. Many of the professional blogs have this, such as @lifehacker, @mashable and such, but now you can too!

All you need is three basic ingredients:

  1. WordPress to run your blog
  2. plugin called Yoast (by @yoast) that does SEO for your site, but also implements Twitter Cards and other magic
  3. Some technical knowledge (or a healthy dose of endurance) to be able to install both 1. and 2. and apply at Twitter. Read more about this at and apply your own site.

Just yesterday I received the confirmation from Twitter that my site has been approved. So this post is actually my maiden attempt to test if Twitter Cards works on my blog.
