Show better gist previews in twitter with a code snippet and a link to the gist

GistCard is a better way to share gists (until github does this themselves 😉). It shows a snippet of the gist as a preview using carbon and includes a link to the gist.

The original inspiration for this was from a tweet from Suz Hinton. It's a wonderful idea, and I fully expect this tool to only last for a little while until GitHub does it officially.


GistCard is used by adding the gist ID or gist url after Clicking on that link will rediredct any user to the actual gist page.
