This project is also available on GitHub (, as shown in the following screenshot:

To install TwitterOAuth on the TweetsAbout extension, follow this recipe:

  1. Open the terminal or command prompt.

  2. Under the packt/app/code/Packt/TweetsAbout/Api directory, run the composer require abraham/twitteroauth command.

  3. Access, click on your application, and click on the Keys and Access Tokens tab to get the following:
