Hi all,
This change is quite simple but something I use a lot. Along with the currently supported Twitter meta data for sharing links this adds a few extras.

The tag twitter:creator is used to identify the author or creator of a page by their Twitter handle (for example @ JohnSundell twitter account)
The tag twitter:site is used to identify the site by it's Twitter handle (for example the @ SwiftBySundell twitter account)

I have added three new nodes. twitterCreatorHandle, twitterSiteHandle and twitterHandle. twitterCreatorHandle and twitterSiteHandle each add their own tags and twitterHandle adds both.

<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@CreatorHandle"/>
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@SiteHandle"/>

The twitter:creator meta tag should however only be generated for the Summary with Large Image card.

The reference can be found here.
