Twitter Cards are quite the rage now when it comes to sharing your stuff on Twitter. They add that zing to sharing. But there are loads of plugins for WordPress already, so why did I create my own?

Well, here’s the brief rundown:

  • The ones I saw, none of them are WordPress.com VIP compliant
  • Most just get the job done but the code is well….. unhealthy!
  • The ones I saw, none supported player card
  • I needed filters to be able to override the output etc. fully or partially
  • Being the attention seeking douche I am, I wanted to roll my own plugin 😀

Its all pretty easy and neat to use. Just activate the plugin, set a few global options on plugin settings page and done. By default it produces summary card tags for all posts and pages. If you want finer control or want player card for any post or page then select the global option for control on post pages and it will provide a meta box on post/page add and edit pages in wp-admin where you can set card to player card.
