I’m currently set to work on my next project: Building a Pinterest Clone. However, one of the user stories listed is to allow users to login in with Twitter. From what I can tell, the only way to do this would be to use Passport-twitter.
However, passport-twitter requires you to have a consumer and key from Twitter. To create an application on Twitter and receive these keys you must verify your mobile phone number with Twitter. I really don’t want to give out my mobile phone number and was wondering if there was any way around this.
Has anyone managed to fake a number for Twitter? (Most receive sms sites I know aren’t accepted).
Would it be acceptable to allow logins from a different source, like GitHub, instead of Twitter?
(Until now I’ve been using passport-local authentication for the dynamic web app projects)
