How does a site become an oembed provider?

@tomkincaid Tom Kincaid

So I have oembed set up. How does a site actually get whitelisted to become a provider on Twitter?

Sorry, we're not offering a path to inclusion at this time.

This discussion hasn't been updated in a while. Is there still no path to being included on the Twitter whitelist? We'd love to see our content at it's full potential on Twitter:

Ahh. Well, is there anything you would suggest that we do to be in a good position for being considered? Thanks for your help!

Any change in policy on the horizon ? The twitter accounts of Populis' blogs have more than 120K followers and we'd love to serve them better

I am interested in this too - Twitter seems to support a preview (view media) feature for
It also has a "view video" button for and

Is there any documentation explaining either: a) what the whitelist of sites is that have this kind of special treatment or b) if it's not based on a whitelist, how to go about setting up this kind of facility for your own url?

@kurrik I'm having a similar issue with the "view media" preview in tweets... I use a blog and I cannot get the preview to show in tweets with a blog post shortlink. I have adjusted privacy/sharing settings in both wordpress and twitter, I've auto-published from the blog to twitter, I've posted both the full link and a shortlink... tried everything I can think of... and it still will not appear.

I've searched all over Twitter help forums, Wordpress help forums, google, etc., and I'm not fully convinced I need to apply for Twitter Cards, because it seems like wordpress & twitter allow the preview for others' blogs ( | | but not for mine. Although the Twitter Cards seems like the closest answer. Here is what I see when I tweet a shortlink of a wordpress blog post:

If I need to apply for Twitter Cards to have a simple preview, please let me know. I'm not sure where I would embed code in my free wordpress blog, since I don't write the code for it, just the content.

Thanks for your help!
