We have gone back and forth on Twitter cards for most of the last year. We like the idea of them, but we don't always have the photos to support them. I had asked TownNews to change our metadata tag to have it display the summary Twitter card, rather than the summary card with large image. But this takes a macro off the update path, which we want to avoid.


So I've submitted a feature request that they would make it possible to choose the Twitter card type without messing with the update path. Even better would be if we could control the Twitter card type in the metadata by section.


We just really don't want our stock images to be huge on Twitter. We also get weird crops of opinion columnists, etc. We feel like the summary card with the thumbnail would be a better option in a lot of cases. It'd also be nice to be able to use the player card for our videos.
