I have a link


It shows fine in facebook and it whatsapp. I mean it brings up the image and the text. but in Twitter ir keeps the text it has originally? How can I scrape it to update the text?

This is the code.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset="utf-8" >
<title>Quién hizo este video? </title> 
<meta property="og:title" content="¿Lady Garza" />
<meta property="og:url" content="https://videoladygarza.com/video.php" />
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:image" content="https://videoladygarza.com/ladygarza.png" />

Twitter only scrapes the URL for images and displays them for the companies it has partnered with.

Current companies include: DailyBooth, DeviantART, Etsy, Flickr, Justin.TV, Kickstarter, Kiva, Photozou, Plixi, Twitgoo, TwitPic, TwitVid, USTREAM, Vimeo, yfrog, and YouTube.

They also support iTunes, blip.tv, Instagram etc. as explained here.

If your link is not from one of these partnerships, you will have to add the image. Utilizing a social media sharing platform or marketing calendar tool, is a great way to mitigate this and be able to schedule posts with images you want associated with links in Twitter. Here is an article explaining the differences between some of the top ones.
