Twitter Card Meta Data Problems (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: Added my twitter username in the Social section to try to enable twitter card meta data

    I expected the plugin to do this: Add my correct twitter username to the head section of my blog.

    Instead it did this: When using the twitter card testing tool, testing tool says "Unknown Screen Name: twitter:creator; value=@@thereandbackmn"...

    When I went into my html code in the head section (at http://www.thereandbackagaintravel.com), this is what I found "<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary">
    <meta name="twitter:site" content="@thereandbackmn">
    <meta name="twitter:creator" content="@@thereandbackmn">"

    I had initially put the @ sign in front of my twitter name in the Yoast plugin because I wasn't sure if it was needed or not, but I took it out (and deactivated the twitter card setting in Yoast, and reactivated it again just to be sure.) I have deleted the plugin and reinstalled it, and installed the developers version as instructed. The extra @ sign is still showing up in my code. Any ideas about where it is getting pulled from?

    It's take from the "Twitter Username" section of the author's bio. One of my users entered this with an @ symbol at the beginning too; just remove that and it should work.
