In this post, we will discuss how to update the picture on the Twitter card validator.
A Twitter card is a structured piece of data that you can add to your profile on the microblogging site. These data are exchanged with a website that has a reader. When the reader receives it, he processes the information and displays it on his screen in a way that makes sense to him. For example, you might want to include a “photo” of yourself with your tweet
(a “profile photo”), or you could indicate that you are a real person who has sent the tweet by including a “verification code” from another site where you have registered. Twitter cards are divided into four categories: Profile Photo: Shows your current profile photo (if any) and indicates whether or not it was taken by the user who’s reading the card. Thumbnail Photo:
Indicates the thumbnail photo that is automatically uploaded along with your tweet. It will be displayed as a small image next to your tweet in a Twitter thread. Text Only:
Used for long tweets that don’t need an image. Card Markup: Allows you to add custom HTML to the beginning or end of your tweet. This is useful for adding links, ads, photos, videos, and so on. You can use this option once per every ten cards you send out.
The first time you use it, you should include the following code in your markup: This will cause the reader’s browser to download and display your photo, or whatever other information you are sending him. After that, if he receives another Twitter card with Card Markup: enabled, his browser will remember that it has already been downloaded and displayed, and it will not ask him to re-download and re-display it. This makes the process of validating your photo card or any other type of card much faster. If you want to learn more about Twitter Cards, you can read the official documentation here. In this tutorial, we will discuss how to update the photo on the Twitter card validator. First, log in to your Twitter account. Then, go to your Profile page and click on the “Edit” button next to the picture you want to change. Next, you will see a pop-up called “Change Photo”. Click on that. You will then be prompted to upload a new image or select an existing one. Select an existing one and click “Open”. The new image will appear at the top of the “Change Photo” box. Now, all you have to do is drag the cursor down to the area where you want the new photo to appear and click where you want the new photo to be displayed. That’s it! Congratulations! You have just updated your Twitter profile photo. To test this out, send some more Twitter cards with your photo markup to some of your followers. They will receive your photo and automatically upload it to their browser, thus making it available for them to use as their profile photo.
