For points 2 to 5, the below meta tags provide more rich experience for twitter, open graph and also for crawlers.

<meta name="description" content="Page description" />
<meta name="twitter:card" value="summary">
<meta property="og:title" content="Title " />
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:url" content="{$mybb->settings['bbname']}" />
<meta property="og:image" content="{$mybb->settings['bbname']}/path/to/picture.jpg" />
<meta property="og:description" content="Description about forum" />
