    This is really very helpful. Can you tell me what might be the reason behind showing two title tags on every single page?

    You shouldn't actually use two title tags on each page...except for OG and Twitter...If you are adding OG and Twitter meta data, then you should end up with a title tag, OG title tag, and a Twitter tittle tag.
