Troubleshooting: your article images are not being displayed in your tweets?
When no image is displayed in your tweets, please be sure there is an intro image in your artcile, or an image exists inside the article's content.
If your article has indeed at least one image, edit the file robots.txt (located in www.yoursite.com/robots.txt) and add this syntax at the very end to allow Twitterbot to access your images/ folder:
User-agent: Twitterbot Allow: /images
