Bug Description

From Jane Sillber:
https://github.com/ubuntudesign/www.ubuntu.com/issues/820

When tweeting a link from insights.u.c, it would be better if the tweet automatically includes the main image. Is that an option that can be turned on in the sharing plugin?

I thought this is because we're missing a trick in how we configure the sharing plug-in, but I've since discovered that many people use a personal plug in like Buffer which allows you to select the image. So this may be a user issue (i.e., my issue!) rather than a website one.

Hi Jane,

We hard code the Twitter sharing functionality, so there's no plugin involved. It should be fairly trivial to add the main image to the tweet. I'll take a look this coming Friday.

All the best,

Graham
