Allowing for a summary of a posted article and link to your site from your Tweeter page requires the "Tweeter Card" calling for an additional 6 lines of meta name in the article header.
How could that be done in WP?
Any plugin to facilitate the task?

It is a good beginning but does not answer my question
How do you inject in the WP article's header the new meta tags?

You should be able to just edit your theme's header file and add what you need there. The prefered method for editing would be to use a Child Theme.

That I have already done to adapt it to my needs,
but what I need is to edit each page header, which is not possible as, indeed, there is only one header!

So how and where is that card set to serve a per page excerpt?

You can do this but it will require some PHP programming.

The general process is this: You'll need to create a function in your theme's function.php file and then test for the current page being displayed using is_page(). Then you can place code into the header for each page.
