Meta Tags


Learn how to use the twitter:site meta tag to improve your site.

Defines the Twitter username of the website or the content creator. This username is displayed in Twitter cards associated with the website or content to indicate the source. It begins with an @ symbol.

Code Examples

<meta name="twitter:site" content="@exampleUser" />
Correctly starts with @ and matches the user’s Twitter username exactly.
<meta name="twitter:site" content="exampleUser" />
Missing the @ symbol at the beginning, which might lead to incorrect attribution or no attribution at all.
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@exampleUser1 @exampleUser2" />
Includes multiple Twitter usernames. Only one username should be specified to avoid confusion.


  • Consistency is Key
    Ensure the Twitter username provided matches exactly with the one used on Twitter, including the use of the @ symbol at the beginning. Inconsistencies can lead to improper attribution or no attribution.
  • Only One Correct Use
    Use only one "twitter:site" tag per page. When multiple tags are used, Twitter may ignore the extra tags, which can lead to confusion or incorrect information being displayed.
