    Thank you for your question smkyle1. The feature you are looking for is “Twitter cards”. We implemented it as part of this plugin https://sellcodes.com/XdHlrQnc – which also has many other fancy features šŸ™‚

    I purchased the Ultimate Social Media plugin specifically because the plugin website said it would include images in social media posts — now you are telling me that that wasn’t completely true and that I have to spend more money to get the twitter images to post? Am I correct?

    No. If you already have premium, then you already have that feature. On the page where you edit your posts/pages, you’ll find a new section at the bottom, where you can upload the picture which will be taken if people share on Twitter. Can you see it?

    As you’re a premium user, we can communicate directly by email: help (at) ultimatelysocial (dot) com.

    I see it — thanks so much. This is great but it would be better if it just used the featured image as a default. And thank you for getting back to me so quickly

    You’re welcome. Some users want to have a different featured image vs. image which gets shared, so that’s why we separated the two.

    Thanks for the quick answer. Is it possible to offer both the featured image as the default and the other image options as well?

    another related question — the suggested dimensions use a different convention than what I’ve become accustomed to. The plugin suggests to use images that are 1200px by 630px

    Normally I would read that to mean 1200px wide by 630px tall. But your plugin is indicating the opposite. Am I right?

    Also — I uploaded an image using the suggested dimensions and then tweeted it but didn’t see the image in the tweet. Does it take time for the image functionality to be read by Twitter?

    OMG!!!! It works without having to add images at the bottom of the post. I just tried it.
