More than 10,000 developers are already using Twitter Cards, but today Twitter has rolled out a new Twitter Card which is equipped with mobile app deep-linking.
The new Twitter Cards have been developed by Twitter to closes the loop between content creation, content discovery and app downloads.
Allowing users to tap a link within the new Twitter Card to either view content directly in an application, or download the app if its not already installed. To enable this feature, you just need to add a new set of markup tags, explained here on the Twitter Card website.
New types of Twitter Cards include :
– App: Show information about your app, including app name, icon, description and other details like rating or price. Just give us your ID and we will display information about your app from the App Store or Google Play.
– Product: Represent products by showing an image and description, along with up to two customizable fields that let you display more details like price or ratings.
– Gallery: Represent an album or collection of photographs via a preview of the photo gallery. This card indicates to a user that a gallery has been shared, rather than just one individual photo.
