Hi John, hi all,
You might consider adding a few meta-data tags to some of your web pages
to make them look nicer on Twitter, using Cards .
For instance, on the page that announces the 4.4.1 release  you could
try this :
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@theoctaveguy" />
<meta property="og:title" content="Octave Version 4.4.1 released" />
<meta property="og:description" content="Octave Version 4.4.1 has been
released and is now available for download. An official Windows binary
installer is also available." />
I have no experience with these Twitter Cards, I simply adapted the
example from , so perhaps some of the tags are actually redundant
with existing tags on the page.
Do I get it right, that the "twitter" cards is just some meta markup, that can be included in Octave's Newsfeed? This might not be a big deal. But what is the benefit of this effort (explained to a non-Twitter-user like me)? This is not clear to me from the url .
