    • > /wp-content/plugins/deweys-twitter-card-helper/templates/twittercardform.php
  • 3× PHP files trigger server errors when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: twitter_desc in wp-content/plugins/deweys-twitter-card-helper/templates/twittercardform.php on line 23
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: twitter_type in wp-content/plugins/deweys-twitter-card-helper/templates/twittercardform.php on line 28
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: twitter_title in wp-content/plugins/deweys-twitter-card-helper/templates/twittercardform.php on line 18
