A way to control the twitter card image for a post

By default twitter just pulls in your avatar, which sucks for posts that lead with an image. I tried adding the <meta> tags that twitter looks for, but cohost unsurprisingly strips them.

Something as simple as "Put the first image in the post in the appropriate meta tag" would be nice, but more fine-grained control would be even better.

That's actually strange because in my experience most times an image post gets that image as the cover and the posts with more than one image pull the last one for some reason. Is it inconsistent now?

Oh you know what, I think I got confused. The image I wanted was actually a non-image embed that cohost was showing as an image, but which wasn't passed along to twitter.

I wonder if in this case adding the image above the embed but hiding it with CSS would work?
