Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Twitter Card Invalid Creator (URL instead of @username)

  • WordPress: 3.5.1
    Wordpress SEO: 1.4.4 (And Developer)

    I added the Twitter Cards Markup using your WordPress SEO plugin, and entered my twitter account: vithefiddler.

    This is the code that is generated when this is enabled. It doesn’t validate with the Twitter Cards Preview tool because the creator is invalid. It should just be @vithefiddler, not @

    I did disable all of the other plugins I have installed, and also looked for the URL in the wp_options table of the database just to be certain that it was coming from the plugin.

    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary"/>
    <meta name="twitter:site" content="@vithefiddler"/>
    <meta name="twitter:creator" content="@"/>
    <meta name='twitter:image' content=''/>
    <meta name="twitter:description" content="I’m really excited to be teaching the fiddling portion of the Violin Celebration: Suzuki and the Fiddler this June. I’m so excited for this event that I’m actually going to leave Weiser early to teach at it. I know – it’s hard to believe.

    <meta name="twitter:title" content="Suzuki Violin and Fiddle Workshop - Vi Wickam"/>
    <meta name="twitter:url" content=""/>

    Thanks for your help!

  • I finally figured it out on my site.
    Go to your regular user profile.
    remove the link to your twitter profile (the link that is showing after the @) and type in just your username – no @, no url, nada except for your name vithefiddler

    It is odd cause it appears that the Google+ field does need the full url and have not had time to check what it does with the other fields.
