By default, we make it easy for people to share their referral links to your campaigns on Twitter with simple text. But Twitter also supports adding an additional image and page summary that you can set to make the tweet more engaging.

Twitter Summary Card with Large Image

 

To enable Twitter Cards for your campaign –

1. Access the editor for your signup page.

2. Required: Click “Settings” on the left menu, scroll down and set the following under ‘Twitter Settings’:  Username (do not include @), Title, Description, and Image.

3. Required: Be sure to Save and Publish your changes.

If you’re using a Twitter Card you will still want to be sure to update the default tweet text for Twitter through your thank you page. Learn how to set this up HERE.

To Test & Validate this works –

Twitter supports a validator that can be used to make sure the correct information is being registered, without tweeting the links yourself. Simply visit this page:

https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator

And enter your published landing page URL. More information about ideal image sizes and the Twitter card format can be found here:

https://dev.twitter.com/cards/types/summary-large-image

 

If you have already set all this on an existing page that was published before 8/17/2015 you will have to open the page for editing, verify the information, and re-publish the page.

UPDATE: This feature was updated on November 17th, 2016 with explicit Twitter settings. If you had previously set the open graph settings everything will continue to work.
