This module lets you authenticate using Twitter in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Twitter authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.
$ npm install passport-twitter
Create an Application
passport-twitter, you must register an application with Twitter.
If you have not already done so, a new application can be created at
Twitter Application Management. Your application
will be issued a consumer key (API Key) and consumer secret (API Secret), which
need to be provided to the strategy. You will also need to configure a callback
URL which matches the route in your application.
The Twitter authentication strategy authenticates users using a Twitter account
and OAuth tokens. The consumer key and consumer secret obtained when creating
an application are supplied as options when creating the strategy. The strategy
also requires a
verify callback, which receives the access token and
corresponding secret as arguments, as well as
profile which contains the
authenticated user's Twitter profile. The
verify callback must call
providing a user to complete authentication.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:
The test suite is located in the
test/ directory. All new features are
expected to have corresponding test cases. Ensure that the complete test suite
passes by executing:
$ make test
The test suite covers 100% of the code base. All new feature development is expected to maintain that level. Coverage reports can be viewed by executing:
$ make test-cov$ make view-cov
