To the wonderful people here who have helped me so much....I have another question!

Seriously though this forum and the people who participate as helper are wonderful. Maybe no one tells you that enough so I want to. You guys rock!


So here is my problem du month. I like those tweets where people write more than on a regular tweet and it is like they are making a poster and posting it. So I found "Twitter cards" which may or may not allow you to do that. But in reading I came along something I had to deal with way back when I sold things on Etsy.com Here is what it says:

Sample Code
Adding a Summary Card to your Tweets is as simple as adding the below meta tags to your site:


<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@flickr" />
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Small Island Developing States Photo Submission" />
<meta name="twitter:description" content="View the album on Flickr." />
<meta name="twitter:image" content="" />


So like WHERE ON MY SITE?? I don't have a site! I have a Twitter frigging page. When I had an Etsy store I remember I stuck a code like this in my profile page somewhere and it worked. I have no idea why.

Then again maybe I don't want this as it might be for businesses. I want to be able to say more in a tweet. I have used TwitLonger.com but that just uses a link.

Help me......?

1. Most of the time...

...I think the 'poster' type stuff you're asking about is actually just an image. You can type up your post in notepad etc. formatted to be narrowish (i.e. in portrait orientation) and then take a screen capture of it. Upload the resulting image to whatever online photo site you use. Then add it as image to your tweet.

2. I didn't realize that you have to add it to the tweet. Thanks for clearing that up!

Ohhhh I just realized what you really were saying.

So I just type out my long winded tweet and save it as a jpeg and then post it as a photo!

Thank you!
