I see that Twitch is using the Open Graph protocol in order to show a thumbnail of a video on websites, such as Facebook and Twitch, etc.
However, I have noticed these URLs change over time.

We have noticed, since these images are being changed over time, the thumbnails obviously breaks if they are used on Facebook pages, tweets, on our own gallery sites, etc.
If you compare these URLs with YouTube they have a more straight forward solution:
Does anyone have more information about this, and/or maybe there is a way to to get a “permalink” of these video thumbnails so that they don’t break over time?
