improved previews when sharing posts on social media


open graph data for bit posts are hard-coded here:

This results in the same, generic caption/image preview when any post is shared via social media.
I attach samples for linkedin (link preview while drafting a new post) and mastodon (actual post from Debian @debian@fosstodon.org)

Both posts had nice images that could enhance diffusion via resharing:

I prepared a MR to make these data dynamic:

The added burden is that whenever a preview image is available, the Image: field should be added to each article metadata.
As a test, I have done that for all 2019 posts.

This should result in better shares on all social media.
