Twitter Cards is a feature that allows developers to integrate things like photos, article summaries, or videos within a single tweet. At an event on Tuesday, Twitter invited developers to introduce them to the new features it has added to Cards that will allow developers to add even more information to a tweet.
When Cards was first introduced, Twitter had given the developers three types of card to play around with— summary, photo, and player/video. Now it has introduced three more types of cards to the list, called App, Product and Gallery. Also Read - World Emoji Day 2021: Twitter reveals 10 most used emojis in 2021 in India
App Cards will display specific information like name, icon, price and rating of the app directly from the App Store or Google Play. The Product Cards will display an image and description of a particular app, which can be combined with the App Card to show most of the information about the app that you normally see on the Stores. Finally, the Gallery Cards will show an album or collection of photographs through a preview of the photo gallery.

In addition to the above, Twitter also introduced a new feature in Cards, called ‘Mobile App Deep-Linking’. With this feature enabled, a user will be able to tap a link to either view content directly in the app, or download the app, depending on whether or not the user has the app installed.
These new features are already available for developers and some big name developers such as Foursquare, Path, Angry Birds, Etsy, Flickr and SoundCloud have already signed up.
