Defines the Twitter username of the content creator to be displayed as part of Twitter Card metadata.

Code Examples

<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@contentcreator" />
Correctly identifies the Twitter handle of the individual content creator.
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@brandname" />
Appropriately utilizes a brand’s Twitter handle when individual creator identity is not the focal point.
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="contentcreator" />
Missing the "@" symbol, which might lead to incorrect or failed interpretation of the Twitter handle.
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="" />
Leaving the "twitter:creator" meta tag blank fails to attribute the content to any creator on Twitter, missing an opportunity for enhanced engagement.


  • Include the @ Symbol
    Always include the @ symbol when specifying the Twitter username to ensure it is correctly interpreted as a Twitter handle.
  • Individual Creators Over Organizations
    Prefer using individual creators’ Twitter handles over organizational ones, as it personalizes the link sharing and can increase engagement rates.
