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 [1].

For instance, on the page that announces the 4.4.1 release [2] you could
try this :

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@theoctaveguy" />
<meta property="og:url"
<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." />
<meta property="og:image"
content="https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/img/octave-logo.svg" />

I have no experience with these Twitter Cards, I simply adapted the
example from [1], so perhaps some of the tags are actually redundant
with existing tags on the page.




Hi Julien,

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 [1].
