But…Since I use the Syndication Links plugin from David Shanske, my post are also shared on Twitter (I don’t really care about other silo’s for now). This is defaulted to the Summary Large Image card. But when there is no image, it just shows an ugly icon.
So here’s the idea: When I post something without the Twitter:image metatag, take some random image from a collection I previously uploaded and use one of those for the card on Twitter. Or take an image based on the sort of post I choose from Post Kinds, another fabulous plugin by David.
I could also get a random image from Unsplash, based on keywords in the post. Or maybe get a featured image or first image from the bookmarked site.
These are some ideas I want to discuss and explore on the IndieWebCamp.
