Twitter Card Support in Nikola

This feature for Nikola was implemented by @amokleben, and now, if you ask twitter your site can have it too.

What are Twitter Cards? Did you notice that for some sites, when you click on tweets that have links, you get a small preview of the content? Well, that's a twitter card.

This still needs a little improvement to support the richer "media" cards, but it does work:

You don't have to do anything in your site, but setting the "description" metadata to your posts helps make this more accurate (and it also works for google+)
