data-pin-description is not working

Just visiting

I noticed that when I add a hidden pinnable image to my blog and pin it to Pinterest, it takes the description from my post excerpt and not from the data-pin-description.
I have this problem with:
- official Pinterest chrome Save extension 

- social warfare plugin's sharing Pinterest button

Also, Tailwind Publisher browser extension doesn't see my data-pin-description and og:description (meta). It takes alt text instead. 

I add a hidden image for pinning to my blog posts with data-pin-media and create descriptions for the pin with data-pin-description.
My code example:


<div style="display:none;"><img src="" alt="Start a profitable blog from scratch" data-pin-media="" data-pin-desription="Starting a blog is one of the best things I did in my life. If you are thinking about starting your own blog, now is the best time! Read the blog post to know how to set up your blog the right way from the very start to make money with it."></div>


I tried to Google it and saw other people having a similar problem, but no one solved it yet.

Lastly, Pinterest takes my blog post title + "- my website name" for the pin title. Can I manually set the title for the pins?

Do you know how to make Pinterest and Tailwind take the right description and title for the pin?

Thank you!

Following... as it seems the data-pin-description is no longer working. I'm in several Pinterest marketing FB groups and it's been reported by many.
