Embiggen the linked WordPress og:image

Looks like WordPress.org blog posts currently use a 150x150 px image as an Open Graph protocol image to sexify shared links on Facebook, Twitter, Windows 8, LinkedIn, etc.

Facebook has a minimum image dimension requirement of 200x200 px to optimize for selecting an image that works in a variety of display scenarios including HiDPI. Current image is under that minimum dimension. Facebook supports an image up to 5 MB in filesize. Twitter supports up to 1 MB in filesize.

Bump up the size of the default WordPress logo used as an og:image on WordPress.org blog and elsewhere to something huge (ideally > 1500x1500 px) for maximized display opportunities for WordPress.org link summaries displayed on other sites.

I think 1500 is a bit too big, but I upped it to the 250px image for now. We have a 2000px image as well which I'll switch to if testing shows that it works better.

Future tickets on this should be on meta.trac.
