  • Twitter cards API Support

    Is twitter cards API supported by Spring-social-twitter?. If yes references to documents would help? If not can someone give pointers on how to extend Spring-social-twitter to access twitter card APIs?

    Specifically what kind of support are you looking for?

    Spring Social Twitter provides connectivity to Twitter via the connection framework and an API binding to Twitter's REST API. As far as I know (and I'll be happy to be corrected on this) there are no endpoints pertaining to cards in Twitter's REST API.

    It's my understanding that Twitter Cards are a display-time consideration. You place specific meta tags in your web page and then when someone tweets about that web page the meta data is used to enrich the displayed Tweet with media experiences on clients supporting cards.

    Again, if I'm wrong on any of these points, *please* correct me and provide links to resources where I can find out more. (FWIW, I am aware of the content at which speaks to how to add meta tags to your site.)
