I was sending a tweet out this morning, and expected that one again I would see Elon Musk’s meddling with Twitter’s previous utility, and the shared link would just be a big ol’ image, with a tiny URL in the corner.


To my surprise, the tweet actually retained it’s meta title & description elements!

Looking at the page, it seems the developer didn’t include an OG image.

Is that the key? Just keep the post from including an “OG” image element?

Well, that’s what this post is for, to test and see if Elon Musk’s meddling is all based on the OG images we are communicating, and if there is none, it will default back to the old style of displaying links.
