When I post a track to twitter, from sound cloud through the sharing feature, the wrong album cover is displayed and the track will not play, giving an error message.

Here's the link: https://soundcloud.com/t-jon-styles/2-january

Hi there Hi Robot Music,

Thanks for posting and sorry about the troubles. The issue you're describing is unfortunately rooted in how Twitter stores info on their end. It is basically a caching issue on their end, which has them refer to an outdated URL when the play button is clicked. This should be sorted automatically soon, as Twitter resets their caches on a regular basis. In the meantime, what you can try is change the URL of your track, then share again.

We've forwarded this being an issue to our developers, and they are trying to work things out with Twitter, yet we cannot guarantee when this can be fixed.

Cheers
Mathis

Hi there,

Sorry about the troubles. If Twitter is showing an outdated artwork, chances are that they have cached the wrong information. They are refreshing their caches on a regular basis, so this should soon be fixing itself. However, you could try to change the URL of your track in the track's edit mode in order for Twitter to fetch new info for their cache.

Hope this helps!

Cheers
Mathis
