you should be checking in https://dev.twitter.com, there are lot of APIs information there with example. If user creation and login is not in AEM then your question should not be in AEM forum, this is what i feel.

Hi Bala, you mean, you want user to use Twitter credentials to login and create the profile in the AEM accordingly ?

Have you checked this url ?

Hi Sandeep,

We have user registration module , if user select register using twitter login then we need only user basic info(Name,DOB etc) then we do back end validations and create profile in system. this user creation is not in AEM its external service call.

For Facebook we have client side API's to fetch user data, do we have similar kind of API,s for twitter ?

Thanks,

Bala.

As stated by MC Stuff you can use oauth 2.

Where as if you want to get information about the user from Twitter side, then we need to first understand data exposed by twitter.

One of the APi to extract information about the user is GET users/show Link:- https://dev.twitter.com/rest/reference/get/users/show

I hope this would help you.
