Adding support for Twitter Cards
Could we add support for Twitter cards in Wikimedia projects? It wouldn't
be hard to do and would would be really nice for articles, images, videos -
everything linked from Wikimedia on Twitter could have a nice little
preview on Twitter.

The documentation is at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards - basically it
involves adding some meta tags around existing content server-side.

Looks like it would be pretty simple to do preview images for image/media
File: pages. For articles, some combination of extracting a portion of text
and using the PageImage extension for selecting a thumbnail image would
probably do the job.

We should also double-check on appropriate goodies for Facebook and other
major networks, and perhaps proper native oEmbed support.

Ah, fun. :)

Do you still work on http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OEmbedProvider ?

Could this make a good project for next outreach projects like GSoC or OPW?

I'll have to dust it off and see how much more tweaking it needs... could
be a good-sized project for those if it doesn't get done before them yes. :D

As for Facebook and OpenGraph, http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenGraphMeta (optionally combined with http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Description2) still works and does a good job!
