Twitter allows authentication via Twitter OAuth.

In order to use Twitter OAuth you must register your application at

Example application configuration:

'components' => [
    'authClientCollection' => [
        'class' => 'yii\authclient\Collection',
        'clients' => [
            'twitter' => [
                'class' => 'yii\authclient\clients\Twitter',
                'attributeParams' => [
                    'include_email' => 'true'
                'consumerKey' => 'twitter_consumer_key',
                'consumerSecret' => 'twitter_consumer_secret',
    // ...

Note: some auth workflows provided by Twitter, such as application-only authentication, uses OAuth 2 protocol and thus are impossible to be used with this class. You should use yii\authclient\clients\TwitterOAuth2 for these.
