If I do a post on Twitter and include a link, a preview of this linked page shows as a preview image on the post. On Facebook you can just remove this using the dropdown menu of the post - I can't see how to do this on Twitter thought. Is it not possible?

    Explanation of this feature: webapps.stackexchange.com/a/85277/159892 If you are owner of the website, you can try remove Twitter-specific metatags from webpage and try posting it again – Kos Jan 16 '18 at 20:42

It doesn't appear as though you can do it from the web app. However, you can do it from the iOS and Android Twitter apps.

In each of those mobile apps, when you paste a link into a draft tweet, there will be an X in a black circle in the upper right corner of the preview. Click the X to remove the preview (but keep the link).

Just paste the link as normally you would do, and the preview image will have a button to close it in top left corner:
