The black lump and the texts that follow are for the third link, not the first, which is counterintuitive but I’m not here to fix Twitter
For some types of Discourse content:
- is the blackness to be expected when represented in Twitter?
This caught my eye:
– that’s about profiles, so I don’t imagine relevance to the black representation of a category, but I’m open to suggestions.
Yeah, I know, the vertical lines look bad in the shot above.
Cross-post (categorised as a feature) Image chosen for onebox / opengraph on category page is unexpected includes one additional item of background information. tl;dr an earlier view of the same tweet represented the first of the three links (not the third) and was not bugged by the blackness.
It’s a weird one. Not sure whether I should have begun this in FeverBee (where, I guess, people have more experience with use of Twitter to promote Discourse forums) or Discourse Meta. Apologies for cross posting.
