A Twitter card is a powerful promotional material for business and websites. It comes with a rich image, video and encourages the social media users to click on the attached link. Thus it can drive massive traffic to your blog.
Implementing Twitter cards on your website was a tough process earlier. It was consuming lots of your time as the process starts from applying for the cards through the insertion of metadata on the template to the card validation.
Forget about the past. Now you can add a Twitter card on WordPress website within a few moments. Most of us are using Yoast for SEO. It works with Twitter cards too. So you need not install a third-party plugin for the purpose.
