    PHP/Wordpress help needed with meta data in header.php

    I'm having problems with php5.6 and wordpress 4.3. I want to have my facebook and twitter descriptions to be automated via php.

    THe issue is twitter:image and facebook og:image is broken when php the post thumbnail is invoked. I manually choose a thumbnail that's most relevant to an article.

    Here's the relevant header code:
    http://pastebin.com/CQv0rB0X

    Relevant part's output code with my note there marked from firefox's source inspection:
    http://pastebin.com/adTjih9j

    The thumbnail function is enabled in the wp theme function.php file and thumbnails work nicely on related posts and category and tag pages.

    But I just can't get this working.

    Twitter validator don't work so facebook scraper won't work either.

    Thank you!

    I should have added I used https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_post_thumbnail and neither of these worked.

    Should op go sleeping instead?
