Twitter Title

Twitter Title tags are one of the 3 most important tags to use on your site for Twitter social sharing. The title tag is what determines the title for any social posts made for the URL.

  • Social Networks Supported: Twitter
  • Importance: Required
  • Can use multiple times on same page: No
  • Tag Placement: Head section
  • Example: <meta name="twitter:title" content="Title for This Article" />

While you can use the standard HTML title for your page, here are some better guidelines for setting the Twitter title for your page for a few reasons:

  • Your meta title may be more targeted for search engine results and the tab name in a browser. The Twitter title is always targeted toward social networks and shared views, so you should customize this for your audience.
  • A browser tab and search engine generally only use smaller portions of the title. With a Twitter title, you can customize a title of up to 70 characters, which gives you more to work with.
