Twitter Auto-Share >> Include Featured Image as Media Object

When events are tweeted using the Twitter Auto-Share feature, the event’s Featured Image is not included as a media object.

Currently, the event’s Featured Image *may* display in certain circumstances, but only as part of a website preview, generated from the URL included in the tweet.

Situations where this currently takes place seem to be relegated to desktop users of twitter’s website, while mobile users do not see this preview.

Ideally, the Featured Image associated with an event to be tweeted would be inserted as a media object, allowing the Featured Image to be visible to any/all users viewing the tweet, regardless of the device/platform being used.

Examples

Tween not including media object: https://twitter.com/WomensCalendar/status/947988322990702592

Documentation for developers of twitter apps looking to associate images as media objects in tweets can be viewed here: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/media/upload-media/overview

Thanks so much for your consideration!
