meta tags

Adding new meta property tags added to the page header

So what I noticed coming from Twitch is that when you post links via Facebook or Discord, it grabs certain meta tags within the header section and includes those as the description. It's likely using the tags listed below.

<meta content='WarbladeX - Twitch' property='og:title'>
<meta content='https://www.twitch.tv/warbladex'; property='og:url'>
<meta content='Ready and playing some Battlefield 1 Closed Alpha!' property='og:description'>
<meta content='https://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/jtv_user_pictures/warbladex-profile_image-1e696000d6bd5c71-300x300.jpeg'; property='og:image'>

When posting a Beam profile link into Facebook or Discord, it puts very standard info about Beam and a generic image, but it would be great to have it include your own icon and stream title.

    Found out that this part is mostly likely handled by the "Bio" section of the profile, though it doesn't yet take into account the meta tags for the Game being played and the Title of the stream.

    So I saw that Chad from Xbox had a little description thing when his URL was pasted in Discord, which is great, but if it can be configured to handle more so the meta data that's listed above, it would be even better.

    I'm also trying to figure out why my own description listing will list way more than what Chad's listed in the URL preview. See the imgur album here: http://imgur.com/a/h6HMn
