I’m using the buffer plugin to generate buffer social media posts when a new article publishes. It seems that the featured image dependent networks like twitter and pinterest don’t get fed an image, yet everything appears to have worked fine on the rest of the website.
My thought is that somehow it generates the social media posts before your plugin has a chance to finish downloading and replacing the featured image. I have my articles imported in draft right now so that I can use the manual features to download and set the featured images and then publish. That seems to work, allowing image posts on twitter/pinterest.
If it could replace and set as soon as the article is imported in draft mode, when it’s published the social post should send correctly.
