[resolved] Wrong twitter-card meta created (4 posts)

    WordPress SEO created wrong twitter card meta. In this case:

    <meta name="twitter:creator" content="@http://www.twitter.com/XXXXusernameXXXX"/>

    Twitter cannot use this information. For "creator" there must be the username, not the URL to the profile.

    Could you fix that please?

    its your own input that's wrong, in the user profile it should just have the username.

    On the front page it works, but not in articles. So I checked the profile and yes, you are right: I had my twitter URL in the profile informations within wordpress. Thanks for the hint!

    I'm actually having a similar issue right now. I suspect it's using my username, instead of my Twitter name.

    I have my company's Twitter name (without the @) listed, and it's using "@Dan" on our Twitter cards, instead of the company's Twitter handle. I am the author of every page/post, so that's why my profile has the company handle, instead of my own.

    I am going to do some testing, but if you have any ideas, they are welcomed. If I find a solution or what lead to the issue, I'll be sure to post it here.

    Edit: Apparently our server was having a caching issue, and WordPress was not able to properly clear the database cache via W3 Total Cache's flush button. Everything appears as expected now.
