When I share a post on twitter, etc, it shows the feature picture as a small thumbnail with the post title beside it. I see when others share posts they have full-size images with the post title beneath. Does anyone know which settings I change to increase the size of the image that's automatically added with my twitter post? I've searched in website theme, All-in-One SEO, my sharing widget, and within the individual posts editor (including social settings). I'm sure it's something simple, just not sure where to find it!

I think you have to upload the photo to Twitter and then ad the link.

Thanks Greg. I wanted to change the automated one so it'll be a bigger pic for anyone who shares the post direct from my website. No big deal, I think it's my share buttons interfering.

I had this same problem but, I found the problem in All In SEO.

Is your Twitter card image selected to the large image?

Like the image below. I hope this is all it is because I know how frustrating it was when I was trying to figure it out.

Thanks lakbar12, that's what I was looking for! I've made the change but it's still posting a small image. Do you know if it takes time to update? I'll check my theme too, coz I've adjusted feature picture size on my main page before, maybe this will make a difference (just got to remember how lol).

I am so sorry I got caught up in an article but, no I believe my image went through right away. I wonder if the social buttons are overriding the image from the AIO.

I know when I had social warfare buttons sometimes, they would override certain features in my theme.

You're right when adjusted the feature image sizes it could have affected the Twitter cards.

I can't think of anywhere else the issue would be. If I can think of any other place to look, I will let you know. I hope this issue gets resolved for you.

No worries, I appreciate the help. I think you're right, it might be my social sharing widget that's interfering (I have another website with a different share button that works correctly).

Yes, I think that’s what it is but the only way I knew for sure was I had to deactivate the plugin, then send out a tweet.

I Found this which might help, its a twitter validator that can help you see your image before making an actual tweet. Here is the website. https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator

and here is section on twitter that was talking about the images. i didnt find the answer in the article but it could be something that you still might want to look over.

Thanks lakbar12, you've been so helpful! The card validator is a great tool (I couldn't access the other link but I'll keep searching twitter anyway). Cheers

You would normally add a feature image which would be used when sharing, although social sharing plugins will give you a choice of images to use before you share.

Make sure you have both these in place ... you can search social sharing plugins in the plugins area. and You featured image can be added on the edit page down on the right hand side.

You can create all your social images in a site called Canva.com

Trust this helps

Thanks Martin. I've already checked my social plugin and use a feature image, which it includes in the twitter post. But I haven't had any luck changing the size when it appears on Twitter. I'll keep trying.
