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

Specifies the width of the image you are using with the twitter card, ensuring the image displays correctly in tweets.

Code Examples

<meta name="twitter:image:width" content="600" />
Defines a width of 600 pixels for the image, which is commonly used and recommended for Twitter card images.
<meta name="twitter:image:width" content="1200" />
Defines a width of 1200 pixels for the image, suitable for higher resolution displays.
<meta name="twitter:image:width" content="300" />
Specifies a width of 300 pixels, which may be too small and appear less visually impactful on Twitter feeds.
<meta name="twitter:image:width" content="" />
Leaving the twitter:image:width attribute empty can result in improper image scaling or display issues on Twitter cards.


  • Match Image Dimensions
    Ensure the width specified matches the actual width of the image to prevent distortion or cropping on Twitter's end.
  • Optimize for Display
    Consider using an image width that is optimized for display in Twitter cards, typically around 600px, to improve visual impact in feeds.
