What is Twitter Card and why we need that?

Twitter Cards is helping your tweets to go beyond “text” by extracting related media files on twitter timeline.  You might have witnessed YouTube Videos , images , Author information on twitter timeline.   Twitter cards make it possible for you to attach media experiences to Tweets that link to your content.

Simply add a few lines of HTML( Meta tags) to your web pages, and users who Tweet links your content will have a “card” added to the Tweet that’s visible to all of their followers. Click on Image to view bigger...

In App Type , you can specify your application download URL,  App Developer information while sharing link of the content on twitter, so if someone share page of our  Tweet Analysis App  on tweet ( if we implement twitter card for that) , that tweet will contain app developer id , will tell people to download that app directly from play store our iTunes store.
