Recently I've read about Twitter Cards and tried to use it on one page of my site.

Problem: When I put on Tweet tab I see the notification "Your Tweet was over 140 characters. You'll have to be more clever." What is the problem?

Twitter has it's 140 character limit. That's why you're getting this error. It looks like your description is not automatically truncated to 140 characters.

I would suggest using Open Graph Tags, which are automatically picked up by Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

Like this:

<meta property="og:url" content="https://example.com/your-page-url/" />
<meta property="og:title" content="Your Page Title" />
<meta property="og:description" content="Your Long Description" />
<meta property="og:image" content="https://example.com/my-pic.jpg" />
