I would like to add an image to a twitter message with a link to the homepage of my website.
I have added an image in the sp pagebuilder page - options - open graph (attachment opengraph.jpg)
But it is not showing in twitter (see attachment twitter_image.jpg)

Could you help me with this?

open graph are for Facebook mostly. We do not have field for twitter yet
You have to use tags: https://davidwalsh.name/twitter-cards

if you have Helix3 or Helix Ultimate - you can add metatags inside template settings.

Maybe there is also ready plugin for it search on JED.
Sorry I cannot help more.

Hi Paul, maybe they don't support twitter, but is works also with twitter.
I have tested on several websites, and it is working fine.

You can test with the articles from this site:

Take for example this article:

Copy the link to a new tweet and the picture comes to your tweet.

In next update Twitter Meta Tags will be presented (like we done for FB), this part is already done in code.

I do apologize for my stupid questions, never mind…:
I don't really understand the purpose of Open Graph. I understood it was mainly for Facebook link… but in which way?
Is-it when a special article is published in Joomla, then the article appears automatically on Facebook, or the opposite?
Paul, you said Twitter Meta Tags were to be presented, is it the case now?

My client asked me to set something to automatically publish on Linked'in and Twitter a new article published in joomla… Is Open Graph the clue?

There are no stupid questions, only answer may be...
Open Graph - it's concept of extra METATAG developed and introduced by Facebook, later done it by Twitter (they were jealous). More about it you can find on official websites, and blogs.
We done it for PAGES only. Just fill OG tags in Page Options.
For Articles you have to install extra plugin OG tags. Our solution doesn't work there.
To share article automatically on facebook/twitter you need EXTRA (mostly commercial) extension. We do not have it.
