    Can someone please show me how to add Twitter Card and its Meta Tags on my blog – I need the post shared on twitter as ‘Summary Card with Large Image’.

    I am currently on wordpress.com and using a free theme (so I cannot buy a plugin/upload).

    Also I don’t know anything about codes…

    The blog I need help with is eyesandvoice.com.

    It’s not possible to edit your site’s metadata, but we set meta tags for you for each post and you should see a Twitter card when you share a post with an image or gallery.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

    When a published an article on shares on my twitter without the image (just like an ordinary tweet) – I will like it to share as ‘Summary Card with Large Image’.

    How can I do that?

    Could you please send a link of the post you are referring to? Make sure the post contains an image or gallery. If that doesn’t work then please add a featured image to your post: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    It seems Twitter pulls the featured image post. Please make sure to use a large image because the Twitter card requires an image with minimum width of 280, and a minimum height of 150. The Image must also be less than 1MB in size.

    You can read more about this at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards

    ok thanks. but I think I cover all this images size requirement. if you see my post(s), I use 470 width or 770 width for slider posts.

    It seems some posts still have small featured images. For example, the featured image width on this post is too narrow: https://eyesandvoice.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3026&action=edit

    Anyhow, I recommend using slightly larger images as your featured image :)
