This is the codebase for the tutorial entitled “How to integrate Twitter Login into your React app”.

Note that because of the requirements of the OAuth 1.0a protocol that the Twitter authentication follows, we cannot implement a pure React solution
(two reasons: React’s inability to securely hide a secret, and due to the Same Origin policy). You will see an Express component in this codebase.
